Here's my newest pendant. I call it Picnic because it reminds me of a picnic blanket. It's a variation on Night Sky weave.

This piece is much smaller than it appears.  The width of square is 30mm (1.2 inches).

Thanks for looking,

Dance.  Even if you're the only one who hears the music.

The metallics are awesome! If you don't mind me asking, what is the finish on those seed beads?

Marcie, they are all metallic finished.  The metallics are my favorites, closely followed by the matte metallics.

kelle261, the picnic weave is a simplification of night sky weave.  The pattern describes how to weave night sky, but in the last page I explain how to modifiy the weave into picnic.  You can purchase the pattern on my website here: http://www.beadinfinitum.com/Kits/index.html#Night_Sky  Thank you for asking.

Thank you all for your kind comments.

This is really pretty and the fact that it's small makes it even more eye catching ~ the color combo is really yummy!
