Here is something rather unusual. I've made lentil beads with an opening on one side before. Making one large opening allowed me to place a charm or other item slightly inside the bead, creating a focus point within the larger bead. This time, I decided to poke holes of varying sizes on both the front and back pieces of the lentil. Of course, that wasn't enough, and I had to try embellishing through the holes. The result is the pendant you see here, hung simply from a stand of purple Swarovski pearls. It's a unique piece and should bring comments when worn. I plan to give this concept another visit and see what I can come up with. The smaller image below right shows the back of the pendant.

These first samples were made with one of the smallest round discs, and several of the long round "snakes" made with this disc piled next to each other. I really like the way the extruder passes colors at different speeds, creating new color combinations and designs.
