I'm a compulsive buyer, I'll admit it. I see something beautiful and it's not enough to admire it; I want to possess it. I want to be able to touch it and feel the texture and admire the colors close up. This polymer clay lotus pendant from Staci Louise Originals was one of those pieces I had to own. I was powerless to resist. I'm always a sucker for a lotus motif and the shading she did on this one... ooooohhhhh, the color!
For the macrame strap on this one I used a slight variation of my new Peacock Bracelet Tutorial (I just switched up the beads a bit and started with longer cords.) I also used some of the new semi-glazed seed beads from Toho:
The colors of these beads are really soft with a little color variation to them, which plays well with Staci's pendant. To finish off the pendant, I added a faceted polymer clay bead from Barbara Bechtel and a copper leaf headpin from Kristi Bowman Design. I think the combination is something pretty special (then again, I may be slightly biased).
