Purple Pansy Pendant

This purple pansy pendant was created  at Shuttlebirds  2019.  The course was taught by Marie of West Pine Creations.  This is also her design/pattern. She calls this tat smithing, it is done using two strands of metallic sewing thread.  The technique of how to cover the pansy bead is different from the popular icedrops  by Diane C.

There was a learning curve using the sewing thread. I pulled too hard and broke one thread, had to add thread at a ring.

Not my best work but I am pleased with the results. I really like how it turned out and the picture does not do it justice. I purchased her books and plan to make some matching earrings.


  1. Very nice pendant. It's true, there is a learning curve using metallic thread, but you have mastered it very quickly.

  2. FABULOUS!! I am soooo proud of you. This was a hard class and you mastered it beautifully.

  3. Wow, it’s really impressive.
