This is my entry for the Chip Challenge on the Beady Bunch page. The Beady Bunch is an online beading group I belong to.
The chips are citrine, the pendant component is brass, and the chain and findings are gold-plated.
I’m getting lots of positive feedback from my beading buddies! Happy Dance!
This is possibly my favorite of all the things I make:
There is one little part I don’t like, though, the button shank: (It looks like a cat’s nipple.)
Now, you could argue it’s on the inside of the locket and doesn’t matter, but I still don’t like it. (It looks like a cat’s nipple.)
I have some tiny brass stampings I could use to cover it, but they are all too flat. I needed something more dapt, or concave.
Then it hit me, I could use a bead cap! Ta-da!
A little glue, and no more cat’s nipple. It’s a pasty. There might be one for sale on my shop page!Karla Krafts
