Alberta Pendant

The Alberta Pendant started out as something completely different. I bought a pattern on the internet, but my French had let me down this time. I am just to ashamed to mention the original designer here - her work is outstanding! When I realized that I am -what we in Afrikaans say busy to- "gorrel tjorrel" -that means that I did not know what I had been doing and had been making up my own instructions - because between the illustrations and the French instructions something went wrong and my pendant was strange-looking and did not resemble the awesome design it was intended to be. Well, as my pupils by now know - my motto had always been that you do not make a mistake, you only create a new design. See girls, I sometimes do practise what I preach. Now, to go as sit down and to put it on paper for you.


  1. Wow, this is beautiful. Congrats.

  2. Thank you for your kind words. Much appreciated

  3. Hi Rani

  4. Lovely pendant. I love your motto - took a cheese making course once where the teacher said the same thing about creating a new cheese LOL.
