About this design:

The pendant is the inspiration; I thought it was very pretty and different; I also found it very difficult to figure out how to display it.


LB shell pearl, black horse eye chain; TC Antique silver bail; some silver beads I had on hand and of course the Earthenwood Pendnat. I'm not sure I'm really happy w/this. I'll have to sleep on it.

    Very dramatic looking, I love it! I think that your use of black against it lets the colors and details in the pendant shine. Great job!

    I like it the way it is too. It’s simple but striking and lets the pendant shine.

    This is very me, Judy — I love the combination of chain and pearls! As far as I can judge from the pictures, it is good as it is! Maybe you hesitate about the colors not quite matching in pendant and pearls? As long as you don’t find the spot on perfect match, I wouldn’t bother changing it — black is the perfect background color. Love it :-)

    Perfect choices of pearls, chain etc…it all together is great! I don’t think you could have made the pendant look better!

    lovely combo!….thought the silver beads were black/white(eg water jasper) unti I saw close up & that was as effective!

    Your necklace is beautiful. I thought it was made from clay. I was surprised when you said it was a wood piece. Very clever. Be happy about this piece.
