Pendants This Time

About this design:

Yesterday seemed like a good day to make pendants.
The two greenish stones are rhyolite. I've had them for ages.
The fan shaped piece is carnelian which I have also had for ages.
The multi-stone pendant is made from parts of two necklaces that were blah plus the addition of a rich wine colored fire polished bead that is the only new thing in the collection.
The copper disc is one I have had hanging around for a while. I had punched two holes in it but it didn't work with my design idea.
The filigree copper disc is from a pair of ear rings that lost one. I added the turquoise nugget to give it a little extra color.


rhyolite, carnelian, fire polished and lamp work glass, a pearl, copper, silver filled wire, silver plate chain, turquoise nugget

    My favorite is the carnelian, and I LOVE the way you used the wire like a lightning bolt. I think copper and red are beautiful together. Rhyolite and copper’s a close second. All your pendants are pretty and striking.

    Thanks everyone. I’ve been experimenting with the wire wrapped pendants trying to learn how to be more consistent. Seems like too often the wire gets away from me and does things I don’t want it to do.

    The fan shaped carnelian is from a strand of them I bought a long time ago. I didn’t stop to think about how to use such an unusual shape when I bought it. Oh well live and learn. :)
