I Dream of African Treasures

There were so many exciting products making their debut at CHA including the Jewel Loom designed by Julianna Hudgins as well as an exclusive die template, plate and bezel collection released by Spellbinders Paper Arts.

I was inspired by my African roots when I designed this pendant.  The Zulu and Ndebele tribes of Southern Africa are master beaders.  The center panel was created on the Jewel Loom using Toho beads.  I added the little stone beads and treasures by mixing Ice Resin which secured the trinkets in place.

You can find details on how I created this pendant by visiting Julianna's blog and this post:
