Yoko Ono Pendant Necklace For Artbeads.com

We are going to have a glimpse of spring over the next couple of days. We are going from a deep freeze and piles of snow to some very warm temperatures. This new necklace is a salute to winter and spring!

Bronze Quote Pendant - Winter Passes
"Winter passes and one remembers perseverance." Sometimes the beauty of the winter season is overshadowed by its length. This pendant, with a quote by Yoko Ono, suggests that a determined spirit can overcome any obstacle.
Now I have to tell you, I love Yoko Ono. There are many beautiful bronze pendants in this category on the artbeads.com website. This one just called to me. The sentiment is so perfect for me right now. I received the pendant and the bronze beads in January and have been staring at them on my board for a few weeks now.


What I needed was colour. When I make something wearable I like to work with jewelery I have collected to re purpose into something more interesting. Old or new, jewelery components find me in my travels.

Yesterday my board came to life when I started adding a little colour to it. I did not want to cover up the bronze pieces...just enhance them as the focal point. I love the fire-polished bronze beads. No matter what I tried I could not break them up so I strung them together in one strand.


Ahhh. I am so happy now. This was an enjoyable project for me!
