About this design:

I've been participating in Heather Powers Jewelry Making Mojo Challenge over on her Humblebeads blog. This week was all about making your own findings and this necklace shows off a clasp I made with copper wire.

See more of my adventures in trying to make various clasp styles over on my blog: http://sjdesignsjewelry.blogspot.com/2014/03/jewelry-mojo-challenge-week-4-findings.html

Components:

Czech glass in various colors and shapes, recycled glass round (almost all from Lima Beads);Swarovski crystal pearl; Copper plated chain, bead caps, jump rings from Nunn Design; Swarovski crystal bicone; copper altered blank (painted with Vintaj patinas) & brass filigree from Vintaj.

    This looks like a contest-winner to me, Sarajo ! The pendant is intriguing and your wire work is first class – - – a beautiful result.

    This is fantastic–I absolutely love the pendant. Your clasp turned out great and is a wonderful part of the design. I’m still trying to find out if there is a top coat that is applied to the pendant after the patina has been applied–and if so, what product is used. Can anyone help???? Love this necklace!

    Thanks ladies! I appreciate the kind words. The Mojo Challenge has been great for getting me to try new things and tackle some projects I’ve been dragging my feet on!

    Crystal Canary, I use the Vintaj Glaze over the top. I know some people have used Renaissance Wax for a more matte look but I haven’t tried that yet.
