"Corn" Necklace

I bought this beautiful mix of Czech seed beads from Bogal, my bead supplier a while ago. It reminded me the colors of a multicolored flint corn, so I decided to create a more natural look pendant to go with the beadwoven rope. I used a piece of genuine leather and a beautiful, roughly faceted tourmaline nugget bead, with delicate natural cracks in it. I really like how it turned out :)

I want to thank again everyone who congratulated me for my first publication. I have to admit that your warm comments made this even more exciting for me! Thanks! :)
