School started a little over a week or so ago, and the fall semester is always super busy for some reason, much more than spring. There are also a lot of changes that happen in the fall where teachers and other staff at the school will move into different positions and have different tasks asked of them. This is what inspired my “teach” design pictured above. A friend of mine is moving from being part admin/part faculty to going back to being full-on faculty, which she is thrilled with. In fact, that’s the thing about most teachers. We want to teach. Going to meetings and other time-sucks very often get in the way of what our primary purpose is, so this was a gift from me to her in celebration of going back to what she loves to do.
The pendant is ceramic and came from Blu Mudd. The other supplies include copper wire (21-gauge) and findings; 4mm mother of pearl beads (natural, not bleached); size 11 green glass seed beads used as spacer beads; and 6mm rondelle-shaped Chinese crystal beads. I strung it on .015 Soft Flex beading wire and finished the necklace with copper 2×2mm copper crimp beads.
