Can you believe it?  The perennial 2-days-late blogger appears to have her act together (if only for the next 26 minutes, when I then become merely on time :-))

The current bi-weekly challenge was this awesome the colors!

My bead collection/stash has really gotten out of hand, but in a good way.  I knew as soon as I saw the mosaic that I had a silver pendant that really mimicked the pattern and would be perfect.  I also had cobalt, light blue, turquoise and pink glass beads that seemed to fit. 

I wanted to be somewhat random in my pattern but decided to use small silver seed beads between each bigger bead to bring it together with the pendant.  I am such a left brainer though - the random pattern turned out to not look that random.

Make sure you check out all of the entries at La Bella Joya!
