I often find glass beads with imperfections. Maybe they're an odd shape, maybe they have another color accidentally mixed in, maybe it came out of the mold wrong, maybe two beads stuck together, or just a unique shape or color. I set these special beads aside, in hopes of finding a similar oddity so I can turn it into a pair of earrings. However, many of these pieces never find a mate, so I turn them into pendants instead. I use silver plated headpins, and a vast majority of my pendants are glass. I rarely use any other type of bead to make a pendant. No chains are included, just the pendant. For an additional dollar, I can also include a clasp to make it into a zipper pull. The selection is random, so you may get one of the pendants photographed, and you may get something different, but it will be unique - I do not repeat designs, and I only make pendants when I cannot find a match to make earrings. As always, shipping is included at no additional cost.
