Badge Awards

(2020), 3"x2.5" including the bail. Delica beads (silver-lined purple, silver-lined lilac, lilac alabaster, warm white, yellow white, light bronze), 24k size 15 seed beads, bronze drop beads, self-made Kumihimo braid.

I made this pendant from a regular Peyote triangle with a purple to light yellow gradient and bronze bead pairs. I superimposed a winged triangle with the wings pulled together in the center to form a point. I edged both pieces with gold seed beads and drop beads at the tips. For the bail I made a square with a similar gradient and folded it over to make a triangular bail. The Kumihimo braid is a simple spiral design that picks up on the bead gradient.

Felt like a nice festive piece to make, even if the colors are not traditional Christmas colors.

This is so lovely! I really like how you worked the gradient. Also, IMHO, using that simple kumihimo braid really helps to keep the pendant the focus. And I am always so happy to see beadwork get a DD! Congrats!

Say, do you mind if I link to a video which compliments this more eloquently than my own vocabulary allows?

Ellygator's avatar

Sure that's fine. Thanks!

All of it, but the last line especially. This really feels like it could be a prop for a memorable power metal video.

I like the energy of it. That really works! Thank you.

Speaking of which, you haven't perchance been involved in the prop business?

Ellygator's avatar

Not professionally, but I've collaborated with someone a few years ago on a prop that was to be used as a time-traveller's bracelet - you could open it which would activate a crystal that opened a time vortex. Sadly the project didn't get off the ground, but it was fun to try and conceptualize what they had in mind.

That is beautiful! :aww:

Thank you! I really fell in love with the gradient and with the graceful shape of the winged triangle. I've just used it in another bigger project.

You're welcome. It needs more sales in stores like Target.
