Wolf with Medicine Wheel Halo Earrings & Choker/Necklace Set

My husband came home from work one day with a request from one of his co-workers.  The gentleman wanted to purchase a cream/tan pair of Wolf Medicine Wheel earrings for his niece.  Great I thought...until.....
He wanted a necklace to match.  Not just another wolf beaded and hung on a chain, but a completely beaded choker style with a wolf hanging from it!

I am not a designer in any way shape or form and had no idea how I was going to do this.
So I had to brain storm...and fast.  Hubby's co-worker wanted the set as a Christmas gift.

I racked my brain for 3 days and still had no idea.  But then one morning when I handed Wolf his keys, it hit me. Last year I had beaded him a wolf paw keyring done in brick stitch.  This was a pattern that I had purchased from Mary Hipple (aka Kodiak)creator of Wolf Den Designz, as was the earrings.

Okay, now I had a foundation of a pattern idea.  My next idea was to incorporate the 4 medicine colors to coincide with the wolf head by beading each paw in one of the colors.  Four paws of different colors to represent the Medicine Wheel ~ PERFECT!

( Close ups of all 4 paws ~ I really wish that it was in a different color because the yellow paw really doesn't stand out like it should )

Now I had a design I could work with.  I completed a third wolf head to attach to the center.  Here is the final result....

After finishing the completed set, I decided that I wanted to see if this was something I should add to my product line.  So I decided to offer it here on my blog first..just as a test to see how it takes off.  I offer the Tan Medicine Wolf set and a Grey Wolf option, too.
