Caroline Dewison, of Blueberri Beads, was our component hostess this month. Everyone received one of these unique and awesome lichen components.
I love how Caroline’s lichen have little cup shapes. This photo shows some similarly shaped lichen, that I saw during a walk, with my husband on the beach.
And here’s the lichen necklace, that I designed with Caroline’s pendant.
The green is quite intense, so I wanted a neutral background color, where the eyes could rest. So I picked up the gray background in the pendant and added gray wooden cubes, 3 gray polymer rounds and some gray titanium hematite tubes that I picked up at Bead Fest last August. A rounded triangular polymer clay bead by Staci Louise Originals in black and straw-brown furthers the muted tones.
I highlighted the green, with a great, textured ceramic tube bead by White Clover Kiln. I also used some green pearls, 2 green rubber rings and fun, green pellet beads.
I had some glass druk beads from Bead Fest that are the exact teal-turquoise color as the center of the lichen “cups”. So I added 3 of those to accent the lichen centers.

And here’s why the title of this post says that the Reveal is doubled. When we had the August COM Reveal, I could only show a work-in-progress photo of the necklace I was making with Diana’s pendant. Well, it’s finally done, so I’m sharing the finished necklace now!
In addition to the pendant, the turquoise, ceramic round bead was also made by Diana. Artisan ceramic beads by Karen Totten of Starry Road and Gaea are also included in this necklace. The beads are strung on Irish waxed linen and the chain is upcycled from an old purse of mine. This necklace is now available in my shop.
I want to thank Caroline for sharing her lichen pendants with us. It was a delight to work with.
This is a blog hop and I encourage you to visit the blogs listed below to see what the other participants have made with Caroline’s stunning pendants.
