This photo was taken about a year ago when I was working at U of T. They needed a picture of an architect's ring - and they happened to find me. Anyways, back in December we had a "Favourite Jewellery" event at the Toronto Bead Society - who ever wanted to could talk about their favourite piece and it didn't have to be beaded. Anyways, this was mine because I earned it!

****UPDATE***** We now have River's pattern for this lovely piece at the store http://www.bead-junction.com
I've finished River Rose's 5 Sided Pendant, here's the photo:
It's done in brick stitch, and I made 2 variations.
1) I hinged the lid
2) I used drops in the picot at the lid bottom edge.
My advice? Don't do the above! The combination of the hinge and the drops means it is a little complicated to close the lide without catching up some of the suspension strands.
It is quite a lovely objec though - kudo's to River!

Just a bit of fun - a quiz to find out what type of wool you are. Turns out I'm not cushy mohair, but sensible shetland wool... my Aberdeen nany would be proud. It says, "You are a traditional sort who can sometimes be a little on the harsh side. Though you look delicate you are tough as nails and prone to intricacies. Despite your acerbic ways you are widely respected and even revered. "
