ArtBeads.com Review - Valentine's Day

I posted my first creation from ArtBeads.com on February 4th, showing a Gothic take on Valentine's Day. Now I'm going to show you my last piece, a piece that you can wear all year round, and that, rather than being full of sweet hearts and pink and red, shows the true meaning of Valentine's Day -- partnership and love.



When I saw this stoneware pendant I knew I had to have it. Two love birds, perfectly content, sharing a branch. To me, that typifies that sort of relationship I have with my husband -- not the roses, not the chocolates, but the constant, quiet love that follows us everywhere.


(Click to see a larger photo).

I used the new Swarovski coral pearls to pick up the melon color in the stoneware pendant, and happened to have some lucite flowers and pale yellow pearls lying around that I thought would go well with the pendant. The chain is my last length of fringy vintage chain, all the little dangly bits being triangles, not rings. Unique and really cool, don't you think?

All in all, this is my favorite Valentine's Day piece I've ever made.

Head on over to ArtBeads.com to see what else they have for Valentine's Day! And click here to see the Stoneware Pendants -- I really want the turtle one!

  13. This is too gorgeous for words! I have vintage chain which I've had for an age, seeing this piece makes me want to finally use it. The pendant is reminiscent of exquisite washi paper - and coral seems to be very in vogue lately. However it's the 'Lori magic' that makes this so special. You're so blessed Lori.

  20. Wow, I can't wait to check out your bead soup post (above.) I just wanted to pop by and tell you how impressed I am by the Amazon Nights earrings I bought from you -- I wore them for the first time the other day and they was really something special about them! So eye-catching. Maybe it was the unusual color combo. I am just so happy with them!
