1″ x 2″, found objects

It’s the imperfections that offer beauty and depth.  There’s a reason that we’re most interested in the four-leaf clover than all the thousands of three-leafed ones.  At first I looked at this pendant and was frustrated by the marks I’d left in the adhesive as I placed the beads along the edges.  But they create shadows and balance the manufactured perfection of the teardrop charm.  And in the middle, the gem still shines, which is what it’s really all about.
