Twilight Agate Drop Pendant

About this design:

I really liked this bead and the cone but didn't even consider putting them together at first. There are Swarovski crystals in the cone to fill space and a heart shaped crystal at the bottom, which I'm not 100% certain of yet.

I kind of like how it looks photographed on some scrapbook paper I bought the other day.

    Wow! I LOVE it! Putting the crystals in the cone is a fantastically fabulous idea! I can see them winking through the cut outs. Very elegant! Not sure about the heart either, but then I’m not a fan of hearts. What are your other options?

    Very pretty. I like the tiny bits of color from the crystals in the cone. What if the dangle on the bottom was a purple crystal? It would further highlight the little crystals and would pick up the purple color in the stone.

    I agree ith Julie about the color of the dangling crystal. Also, there’s something about the size or shape of that crystal that nags at my mind–can’t put my “finger” on what bothers me. I love how you used the cone to elongate the main teardrop.

    Very pretty,and I agree that the cone really does elongate the bead. I do like the heart by istself,but maybe not with that particular stone.
    Perhaps an agate or carnelian rondelle,or how about a facted round Onyx? Just tossing it out there.
    (Not very comfortable making suggestions,as I consider my work very basic). ;)

    I don’t have any other options to switch the heart right now, but as soon as I can get to the bead store I’ll start looking.

    It does bug me, now that I look at it again, and I’ll have to change it out with something else as soon as I can afford to.

    Thank you all for the feedback and such! It’s so very appreciated!

    What about a little tassel made out of the chain you have with the same crystals that are in the cone at the end of it??
