Swirling color

I'm following my rather monochromatic (or at least mono-tonal!) Mermaid's song necklace with a very colorful and swirling embroidery piece.

Taking my cue from a lovely focal bead by Melissa Vess of Inner Realm Creations, I have been embroidering a free form pendant with swirls of blue, green, lavender and red on a field of ivory and gold.

I'm thinking about adding gold chain maille, or maybe some needle lace, or maybe both. I may add some smaller motifs with gemstones, or perhaps I'll raid my stash of vintage glass cabs. So many possibilities.

What fun!
