Corpse Bride

About this design:

This pendant was created for the Creative Wire Jewelry forum's Year of Jewelry. The theme for the week was the movie Corpse Bride. I thought the stormy colors in this beautiful blue pearl cabochon fit the theme well. The bezel was done in Viking knit and embellished with tiny coils and 2mm beads.


Blue Pearl, sterling silver

    OMG!!! Another amazing feast for the eyes. Definitely eye candy. Do you sell. Are you a Pro or do beaders consider themselves professional. Well…. stupid on my part… of course there are beaders who definitely fit that bill.
