Iznik Pendant

Iznik Pendant
When I first saw this cabochon, the flower design reminded me of the Iznik tiles found on the walls of Topkapi Palace in Istanbul, Turkey. The classic palette of blue and red adds a strong punch to this ceramic cabochon and it is hard to resist not creating something out of it!

I used bead embroidery to stitch up this cabochon with seed beads in bronze/gold/beige. The pendant was completed with a square stitched bail. I was planning to stitch a necklace chain but decided otherwise. I did not want to draw the attention away from pendant, so had it hung over a silk cord in the same deep red. I think it works beautifully.
