Polymer clay pendant & tubes from Pati Bannister; lava rock, black spinel & red coral from Cat Dancing Ranch; brushed ss flower toggle from High Tide Beads, Hilton Head Island, SC.


When I first saw this pendant from the very talented Pati several months ago, I fell in love with it and immediately ordered it from her Etsy shop. Here's the way she describes the pendant: "As bright and pretty as summer, this poppy pendant inspired by the vibrant paintings of Gustav Klimt is a winner with summer white and a great tan". I totally agree!!! I wanted to design something bold but not overpowering. And, since the black of the pendant is a matte finish, continue the use matte black with the lava rock.


Whoops! It wasn't until I took a close look at this photo that I realized I forgot to add a black spinel rondelle on the end of one of the coral clusters ): Back to work!
