The design is by Cynthia Rutledge in the Beadwork magazine. She has the other side of the pendant as a gold oval. But I found two shell ovals that I liked, so I created a reversible pendant. It might not show in the pictures, but one fleur de lis is purple and one is pink.

This is the first time that I've tried bead embroidery. It's not elaborate, as I wanted to keep it simple. When Mom went to Arizona to visit a cousin, she saw the turquoise cab and thought of me. Once I learn more stitches for embroidery beading, I think I'll enjoy the techniques all the more :) But for now, this is a start!
