The heron pendant at the center of this necklace inspired the rest of the design. Herons are such magical creatures!

Cheri was inspired by the color of turquoise patina when she made this necklace. She matched the patina pendants at the center of her design with Dakota Stones gemstone beads in the perfect matching shades. To complement the organic look of the patina finish, she used TOHO Amiet thread to create a wrapped design on her donut pendant, as well as to create beaded crochet strands for the body of her necklace. You can see even more patina inspiration in this Artbeads Cafe episode.
