Two pendants by glass artist Nikki Blanchard

The other day, I was lucky enough to receive these two stunning pendants in my mailbox. They were both created by Nikki Blanchard of Moontide Workshops.

Nikki Blanchard was one of the pioneers in developing sandblasting and fused glass techniques. She has taken some time off for the last few years, and Beadin' Path has a very limited stock of some of her incredible focal beads and pendants available just until the end of the summer.

The pendant on the left is a vintage Czech glass drop that Nikki Sandblasted to reveal a series of beautiful, bright red spots. The one on the left is a vintage Swarovski crystal pendant in Volcano with a gorgeous, leafy fern pattern that has been etched onto the back of the piece.

Since each pendant is handmade, they are truly one-of-a-kind, miniature works of art.

Beadin' Path has dozens of beautiful designs by Nikki, some with nature themes and some with intricate geometric patterns, and in every color that you could possibly want to complement your special project.

If you want them, though, you had better hurry - Beadin' Path will only have them available online for a short time.
