New art bead pendant

Check out this new fiery little number:
Fiery flower art bead pendant
I've listed it in my Etsy shop. :) I really enjoy making these little art bead pendants. The teeny tiny slices of petal cane are tedious to work with, but that's ok. The finished look is worth it!
This time I made a bead cluster for the bottom accent. Isn't it cute?! Even Aaron said "I like that! That's really cute!" Coming from a man I take that as quite the compliment. LOL!

I want to find some new sterling bails to use on my pendants. The ones I have (like pictured above) are too small. So far I can't find the perfect size. I want bigger, but not too thick and gaudy. Do you buy bails online? Care to share sources? :)

Hey girl! Do you ever make anything that isn't so darn cute?!!! I love all your stuff, and you need to make more of it to fill up that shop of yours!

As far as bails..alot of people are fans of firemountaingems.com (I'm not though) my favorite place to get things like that is thunderbirdsupply.com. They have a ton more stuff in their catalogs though than I think they list online.Hope that helps :)

Hi Susanna, and thanks!! I just keep reducing until the petal cane is tiny. Then I slice and arrange just like you would with something larger. The little leaves are not canes, they are just teeny tiny balls I shaped into leaves. :)

Hey Lissa! Aw, thanks! I'm working on the shop...slowly. :)
Thank you for the shop tips!! Thunderbird is new to me, I'm going to check it out.

Hi Christie,
Thanks for stopping by my blog. I ended up reading a lot of yours. Good luck with the polymer clay!
