Last week, after I completed the first honu pendant, I set to work on a new beaded rope necklace and a new honu pendant. I was (am) very determined to keep the new honu plain. Much harder said than done. All beads have a little glitz to them, but I really find it hard to restrain the impulse to add a little more shimmer by adding beads that catch my eye. So far, I have been able to restrain myself. So far. I am almost done, so I think I can make it simple.
“Honu” Hawaiian word for Sea Turtle.
Early stitches…and then done.
Now to add the backing and edging. Than this little cutie will be done.
Note: It’s actually not that small. It is 2-3/4″ square. Then the edging is added, it will be nearly 3″ square. I think a slightly longer choker length will be best. We’ll see.
