How's your Apatite?


About this design:

I was playing around with a ladder pendant, and this just created itself. I had also finished a viking knit in the same color, and I loved the two of them together!

Components:

brown wire, handmade coils, apatite

    Marvelous pendant – and this is ANTHER reminder that I have to learn Viking Knit… was browsing in the library, picked up a book and the person on the cover appeared to have a VK necklace w/ a turquoise nugget in the middle, flanked by 2 round stones…

    Thank you all for your wonderful comments! :D

    Sorry I was gone for 2 days – rehearsal in Salida for several hours yesterday, to prepare for 8 performances this morning at 6 different churches for Easter Sunday – 1st performance was at 7, which means I had to leave home at 6:15…I was the first one to carve a path through what is turning out to be our biggest and wettest snowfall of the year! Yes, we were freezing our butts off, standing outside at 7 am….

    And yes, it is still snowing, off and on…

    Ah but your viking knit is to die for my friend! :)
