Bead Table Wednesday: Meadow Necklace


If At First You Don’t Succeed…

I made a necklace with a gorgeous ceramic clay pendant from Shaterra Clay Studio and I was so pleased with how it turned out.  I was holding it up to admire it last night when…awk…I found a mistake!  See, look, I messed up the pattern of the little tan jasper beads!  So now this necklace is back on my bead table, to be re-strung.  I hate re-stringing!!!  By the time this blog is published though, I’ll have it fixed and listed in my ArtFire studio.

I named this necklace Meadow.  Don’t you just love this pendant?  It was the inspiration for the color scheme for the rest of the necklace.

Ceramic flower pendantGoing with the flower theme, I finished the necklace with this great brass filigree leaf  clasp from Israel.

  1. So pretty Linda – I feel your pain – I was trying to make wire wrapped loops last night and kept forgetting to attach it to the chain : ( I’d finish each one …be all pleased…then realize it wasn’t attached to anything! : ( ).

    Lovely necklace!

  2. I love the design Linda, those colors have always been favorites. Sharleen’s work is always amazing and unique. I bet if you hadn’t say anything about the mistake most likely nobody would ahve noticed. But you’re too honest to let it go like that.

  3. Love the necklace Linda. I once read somewhere that native Americans would deliberately leave an error in their work, to show that they are human and humble. Usually I just make errors naturally without even trying!
    Thanks for sending me the link to your work.

    • Yes, I know this to be true. I once taught at a Wa-He-Lute Indian School and then later I taught, for 25 years, on the Yakima Indian reservation in WA. And yes, I often get humbled by my naturally occurring errors!

  4. That’s happened to me many times. Arggh!
    Lovely necklace, really nice colors.
