A Delicate Pendant

About this design:

Several years ago a three or four stone pendant was quite popular (they may still be). I'm not sure what the name of the style was... journey pendant? Regardless of the name I decided to make a similar one in copper with faceted carnelian. Of course it would much more eye catching if I'd used diamonds and platinum but they are so common place.


copper wire, faceted carnelian
