Some beading

I've been working on my bead mat again this last week or so and I'm now caught up with my diamonds although I do have a few in the box to add still but they came from the next thing I worked on today and will get added at a later date.  I really couldn't face any more of them today!

So the next thing I worked on was a Reversible Rivoli pendant designed by Linda Richmond that been sat looking like this for about 2 months now waiting for me to get my arse into gear and stitch it together. 

What held me up was not having soldered jump rings to turn it into a pendant and I couldn't get them locally so in the end I used a split ring (I don't like 'normal' jump rings and will avoid them if I can)
The sides stitched together look no different than they do above so here's a pic of the side instead :)

I picked my own colours for this one but do have the supplies list for other colourways so may well make more in the future

Oh my goodness! I had to go look at Linda Richmond's site! WOW! Of course, I bookmarked it. :-)

Love your beaded mat!
