Black Choker with Pendant

I decided I needed a short black necklace with a small pendant, so I went through my bead stash.  I had 9 shiny bicones, so I picked up beading needle and thread to fashion a pendant. 
Some people are very good following intricate bead weaving patterns with tiny beads.   I am not those people.  I usually get the larger beads, and then start waving my needle around thinking "I'm sure something will turn out eventually."  So, this pendant is what turned out. 
I used black beading wire for the necklace because I wanted it to show through the clear beads.

Farewell to Summer

We are starting down that path to Autumn now.  I can see the leaves falling from the trees.  Here are some photos from the local park in Summer's last hurrah.
