One-of-a-kind pendants call for one-of-a-kind style. Cynthia found this pendant at a bead show and was saving it for a special design. The beads in this necklace are the perfect backdrop for the unforgettable pendant. The textured TierraCast beads and spacers tie in with the handmade look of the pendant, while the Swarovski pearls and Czech glass roundels complement the colors of the piece. The flowers bring a sweet balance to the edgy style. You can see more of this piece and other ideas using Swarovski in this Artbeads Cafe episode.
