Perfect Pairings :: SJ Designs + Tesori Trovati

I am a smitten kitten! I don't go seeking my own pieces for the Perfect Pairings but I couldn't help myself with this one! I send out these pieces into the world and hope that they will inspire the one who received them to transform them into something special, something that I could not possibly have imagined. When I happen to spot them in designs, I get a little electric thrill. I am particularly fond of this new pendant that I created that I call, "Love, Autumn" for I feel that the explosion of color and pattern and patina during the all-too-short fall season is like a love letter from nature to all of us. This design was the piece I sent out to the Simple Truths Sampler Club for November (although they actually got them about a week early and were able to see a sneak peek of a part of the inspiration for the month since I sent them a bit earlier than usual). I love what Miss Sarajo has done here. The pairing of the muted colors in the Czech beads echoes the tones in the leafy pendant. I think that the asymmetry works so well here and really leads your eye. The design is perfectly balanced. This is a necklace that I would be proud to wear, but even more proud to have a part in!

It's a beautiful pendant and the choice of beads compliment it perfectly. I especially love the 3 Czech glass leaves on the side of the necklace.

Thanks for highlighting my necklace that your pendant inspired, Erin! This is hands down my very favorite thing I've made in some time.
