I made a second piece for the challenge. The first piece I made, in the previous post, was influenced by the winter weather of Michigan, using cool colors. My second piece was influenced by the warm weather and colors of Arizona. I unexpectedly spent some time there after my mother fell while hiking and broke her knee cap. After surgery and a short stay in a skilled care facility, I went to help her transition to home.
This pendant is inspired by a class I took with my friend Barb Klann, based on using mixed metals and a beaded bail. These colors are probably my favorite, lime green and turquoise. I incorporated some of the beads in the challenge with additional Czech firepolish and some metal pieces.

The beautiful porcelain bead hangs at the bottom of the pendant.
