Sometimes Simplicity…

I made this enamel pendant and have been looking forward to making a necklace that used it.  I cut the teardrop shape out of copper and added some ripples to the bottom.  I then added enamels in a pleasing color combination with some lines as accents.  One thing I am learning about enamel is that any texturing has to be very pronounced to show after enamel has been applied.

Those of you who read regularly know I love beads, so I envisioned a beaded necklace to go with this pendant.  Well, the pendant had other ideas.  I think the gold foiled-lined glass bead and the two crystals dress the pendant up and highlight the colors I used.  After that, anything else I tried with beads was just too much.  So I kept it simple and added a small dark chain.  And I think the combination is lovely.

it’s important to know when keep it simple.  And equally important to know who’s the star of the show.
