These Liahona pendants from MaryAnne Loveless intrigued and confused me. They’re very ornment-like, carefully layered and textured in but too small to hang on a tree.
If you google Liahona, you’ll find that in the Book of Mormon, a round brass ball of curious workmanship with two spindles was left on the doorstep indicating which way the leader’s party should travel.
MaryAnne scores on all counts with her polymer brand of curious workmanship and decorated spindles. She’s prepared a whole series of Liahona pendants built over striped beads with carefully applied embellishments that you can see on Flickr,her blog, Pinterest, and Etsy.
