Flower Power Pendant

This morning I finished the flower pendant I started earlier this week.

For those wanting to know, the pattern is called Flower Power by Holle Randy. It can be purchased on the Sova Enterprises site. If you decide to make it, just a couple things. It is made by starting with the outside edge and beading each side separately toward the center. The two sides are zipped together on the inside edges. You want to keep your tension fairly tight. Each side will be kind of wavy and warped, but when you zip it together it flattens right out. It's a very fun project.

I'm not sure what I'm going to do with it now, but I've taken tons of pictures experimenting with my camera and whatnot and I'm just going to post some here for posterity. They are some of my favorites.

Still workin' hard at the fair. It's been rather hot-in the 90's F. The needlecraft building is metal with no insulation, air conditioning, or even a fan and it gets like an oven inside. I am very tired of the heat. I drink so much water I feel like I'm gonna burst and I still feel thirsty. That, and I hate being all sweaty. Especially when it slides down my nose, or drips in my eyes. Ick. It's still better than snow though.

Live long and prosper. \\//


  1. LJ, you need to drink something like Smart Water or Gatorade instead of just water. You are losing your electrolytes when you sweat and need to replace them.

    Beautiful flower.

  2. It's so pretty! Could you loop a long chain through one of the petals? It would make such a pretty necklace.

  3. Wow! That is beautiful! What if you did it in Holiday colors and hung it on the tree?

  4. Those colors are amazing!!!! And so are the pictures. So jealous of your camera! LOL.

    And I would rather have the snow over the dripping heat any day!! LOL. At least I don't get sick and pass out with snow. lol

  5. Beautiful beading, and beautiful photos to show it off!!

  6. It's gorgeous, LJ!!! What colors did you use? I haven't felt like beading for a LONG time, but this makes me want to dig out my beads! And your pictures are perfect!
