Sometimes I buy a piece that I admire knowing I can change a small element here or there to suit me a little bit better.
Below is the original piece from honeybee. I loved the pottery shard and how it was wrapped. It's very pretty and delicate. Amy changed the ribbon to a chain for me. I wore it a few times with the very light pink pearl because I really liked it with the pearl, but I needed a darker color with my skin tone.
So, I swapped out the pink pearl for a faceted smokey topaz. I tried some darker pinks with it, but that was too matchy-matchy for me. I think the brown brings out some of the crazing in the pottery, which I like. I usually wear it on one of my favorite faceted ball chains. They have a little bit of sparkle.
By changing one small element, the pendant suits me better and I will wear it more often.
