What was your inspiration?
My son's upcoming baptism and the birthday of my younger sister who will be his godmother. I wanted to make something for her to wear during the ceremony (and for years to come) that allowed me to use my new pearl knotting techniques while being complimentary to my sister's personality.
What are you most proud of?
The creative way I overcame problems like how to hand the pendant, and how to deal with beads that had holes that were too big.
What advice would you give someone starting this project?
Take your time and patiently analyze any issues that arise in order to come to an answer.
