Superstition Blog Hop

Paisley Lizard's Tammy Adams is sponsoring her first blog hop and I couldn't wait to participate. 

Tammy was offering a black cat pendant at a special price to be used as the source of our inspiration.  This was a pendant that Tammy made herself.  I like the background of black, gray, and silver,

I had a hard time trying to decide which other beads to use. 

Black faceted beads and silver seed beads were a possibility

Another choice was gray pearls with black ebeads and the black faceted beads from the first choice.  I almost think those black beads are too large.  All I am seeing are the big beads and nothing else.

The last choice was the large black beads again with a matte silver seed bead.

The end result was something completely different from most of the suggestions.  I almost wonder why I take pictures of the wannabes.  I never end up taking a progress shot of what I actually end of making.

I actually ended up using two different sizes of gray pearls, black seed beads and some gray tube beads that I either got in a destash or one of Andrew Thornton's challenge kits, I can't remember which.

I found a cat and fish toggle clasp in silver to use.

I made earrings to go with the set.  I always try to make earrings whether I end up selling them with the necklace or not, I want to give the customer an option.
