Blue Pyramid Pendant

Sometimes I get an idea which I absolutely HAVE to work on – immediately. Never mind that there’s an exhibition deadline looming or a competition piece needing finishing.

A friend gave me a storage tower with various different dark blue beads. It has been sitting on my shelf, in front of me, for a couple of years. Blue is not a colour I am fond of – I keep telling StitchFix not to offer me blue jeans but apparently you cannot be an American without blue jeans. Oh well, the memes we live with …

Then the idea of a bead embroidered pyramid popped in and said hello. Ok, dark blue – a pyramid, a new pendant design.

The joining of the sides was a challenge. Eventually the ropes of silver seed beads covered all messiness, the large blue Swarovski crystals gave a nice finish, and to top it off, a silver chain with a lobster clasp.
