Scheherezade Pendant

It has been a while. 

I just finished making Sabine Lippert's Scheherezade Pendant. 

All the pretty layers of Scheherezade

You can see that I finally decided to use bright colors. 

Here is a second view:

And finally, a look from the edge.

I liked this pattern.  It was fairly easy to put together, even though as usual I did not quite follow directions.

Next week I will be participating in a fish blog hop hosted by Karen Williams at Baublicious.  At least I think it is next Saturday.  I need to get busy.

    1. I have always admired the brightly colored pieces made by others and never managed to make one of my own. This seemed like the right opportunity. The other major change I made was not using rounds on the outer layer, instead I used shaped beads.

      Glad I am not the only one with work ahead.

    1. Thank you Marsha. I have always admired everyone else's brightly colored works but never got around to making it myself. This is going to be part of a very fun summer piece I hope to have finished by Saturday.

    1. Thank you. I love the layers on this piece. I bought Sabine's book, Beaded Fantasies, when it was first published and this is the first thing I have made. Tune back in on Saturday when I hope to post further embellishments.

    1. Oh I am so sorry for the loss of your computer. I lost one a few years ago and had to buy a replacement within 24 hours. I am absolutely crippled without a computer. I am absolutely blessed that I am able to replace something like that so quickly.

      On a happier note, thank you so much Christine. See the link I posted in the response above for the book the pattern is from. I adore Sabine's work.

      I hope you get a fix or replacement soon.
