Yoko Ono Pendant Necklace For

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 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!
