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.
