Doodad Pendant

Thanks to Jess, I have some doodads on hand to try Jane Eborall's latest pattern. Now, Jane's doodad has four sides and mine has eight. Should be simple enough to adapt, right? Not so easy. Or not as easy as I thought. Took me several goes, but I got it eventually. This is #5 for my 25 motif challenge, as working with doodads and making lock chains are both 'new to me' techniques.

  4. This is a lovely pendant! Very pretty colors and beads, plus a unique doodad!

    I'm anxious to try Jane's pattern, as I love the way the lock chains give the illusion of beads! These new techniques are so exciting!
