Porcelain and Art Metal Necklace...

Since we're going to have a selection of porcelain pendants at the Art Metal Components by Anju booth at the To Bead True Blue Show in Tucson this year, I thought I would put together a sample of how well the two work together.

I turned one of their two-toned charms into a link by punching a second hole in it and combined it with peach calcite, gold freshwater pearls, size 11 amber-colored seed beads, vintage lucite, a gold-plated toggle, and our sugar skull pendant.  I thought the two colors of metal in the link paired well with the bright yellows and oranges of the porcelain in this asymmetrical design.

The design is relatively simple and would look good layered with other necklaces, like a mala necklace made of rudraksha seeds or a choker of pearls.  Really, the possibilities are endless!

Make sure to stop by if you're in the area!  The show runs from February 2nd to the 10th!
