Fossil Pendant

Hi everyone! Perhaps many of you have already heard about the devastating 200 mile per hour tornado in Oklahoma a few days ago. It tore a path over 1 mile wide and 17 miles long indiscriminately wiping out homes, business, schools & lives. I cannot even imagine a storm this wide! My prayers go out to those affected in OK and any area where weather strikes with a deadly force.

I managed to finish another pendant with a fossilized coral stone. It is very unusual, and, of course, I credit the layering technique and great beading fabric to Beadwright!

Admittedly, I am not a lover of the color green, but this green reminds me of a rainforest for some reason. I don't know how I make that connection, but I do like it and find it soothing.

By the way, I have two questions for everyone....#1 Is anyone finding it extremely slow loading photos onto Blogger? #2 Does anyone use the Etsy app for Android & what do you think?

Flowermouse Design said...

I agree - that green color is just amazing Debbie. I love it!!!! No problems with blogger right now...

see you there! said...

This is a beautiful piece, the green comes across very dark on my monitor. I haven't had probs loading pics and I don't use any apps so no help there.

Hi Deb ;o) As soon as I saw this pendant, I had to heart it! I think it's very unusual, very earthy, very natural, very soothing! I think you did a beautiful job on it!!
I haven't had any problems with blogger. Sorry, I can't help you with the second question.
Hugs ;o)

That came out amazing! Green is not my favorite color but I do like it a lot... and love the combo of tones here.

The various tones do remind of a forest. It's altogether beautiful.♥

Tornado aftermath will be a long time to recover for those affected. I don't know how they decide to stay, it must be in their blood. God bless them and all the recovery teams, too.

#1, So far no probs w/photos.
#2 --

Hope you get it all fixed soon.

Looks like I missed this beautiful pendant. You may credit Beadwright, but your work is always stunning.

I always have trouble uploading my pictures, even though I save them at very, very low resolution. I attribute it to the fact I have a slow internet connection.

I don't own a cell phone, so can't help with your app question.

BTW, those pictures coming out of Moore eerily reminded me of Joplin, a town right next to where I lived before I moved to Wichita.

How lovely this piece is! The blue is very striking. I, too, was shocked and saddened by the loss and devastation in Moore, OK. I am hoping that time will help to heal and rebuild.

Hi Debbie! Oh my gosh I used to bead stone pendants years ago and forgot all about it until I saw your post. Green is one of my favorite colors and this is absolutely beautiful. I love it and you did a terrific job.

As for photos, If I am downloading off my computer I resize to "website" image. If I have used Picasa to edit and upload I resize although it takes a little longer somedays than others. Thats all I can contribute and I have a slow internet connection.
