I played around with some ideas for the large donut that came in the package.
But finally settled on this color way.
I'd like to add some delicate gold chain to the piece but couldn't find any just yet that match the gold seed beads.
I attempted to make a pair of matching earrings. They came out a little too much like little angels - not that there is anything wrong with that - it wasn't quite what I had in mind, but I still think they are cute.
Finally - over the last few months, I have been drooling over Liz's beaded mandalas. Go check them out if you haven't had a chance yet, she does magical things with those mandalas. With her mandala's in mind, I used one of the smaller donuts to embroider a pendant. Consider it a mini-mandala as a nod to Liz's beautiful work!
Thank you Liz, for your generosity in sharing this beautiful stone with us and for the fun idea of doing this hop. There were several other participants. Click on their names below to see what they created with blue goldstone!
