Year of Jewelry ~ Week 24

Ok - just so we're clear;  I know my last YOJP post was for Weeks 19 & 20. I am still playing catch up. (I did Week 21 also, I just neglected to blog about it. My bad)
AND, as you know, I don't always follow the prompt for the weekly theme, but I am actually skipping 22 & 23 (for now) to post for Week 24. The theme is "Commitment". This seemed to fit the theme on so many levels☺ lol.
The pendant was actually  my entry for   Week 11  "Rescued From the Scrap Bin" I was determined that I would actually DO something with the pendant so that it didn't have to spend another two years waiting. ~Commitment~
I had seen a necklace design in the February 2013 issue of  Jewelry Stringing. The design was a winner of the 2012 Bead Star Contest for the "stones" category and was designed by Darcy Alice.
As usual, I didn't follow the pattern exactly, (do I ever?!) I re-did the side on the right THREE different times, re-knotting, rearranging, etc. …
