One thing leads to another
This is the first keyring I've made. It was very different as a challenge. I've never had to consider the weight of beads like this or make a piece that needs to fit in a hand, just so, for a practical use. I'm just used to making pretty jewelry!
The strawberry is by Kristine Dery of Krissybeads and the red lentil with the awesome bead caps is by Jena Fulcher.
This request grew out of the others before it. The order started as a request for a strawberry bracelet which led to a desire for strawberry pendants and then to the keyring. It was fun to have this progression blossom from just one client who had the vision of more amazing possibilities stem from the first piece.
