About this design:

If you've read sci-fi or watched TV shows, you know that a wormhole (tesseract) is a shortcut through space. The Saki piece looked like a wormhole to me.


Saki focal, silver- and antique-silver links and clasp, brass-edged glass, shell coins, shell pearls, hematite tubes, black/silver chain

    Awesome Laud! Such a cool pendant and I love how you repeated the swirly/round theme.
    Do you remember a show called The Time Tunnel with James Darrin? That pendant reminds me of the tunnel.

    Laud says:

    I do remember Time Tunnel! Other shows used swirly corridors, too: Farscape, Dr. Who, Sliders.

    I just love how this flows, Laud!! The rings around the czech glass almost look like a pave, from a distance. Beautiful!!

    Laud says:

    I tried a pave inside the ring, but it wasn’t flat like the other elements. Didn’t quite work. Thought the glass added a little bit of warmth to the cool silvers and blacks.

    Very, very cool! I love the concept, and you executed it beautifully!

    Laud says:

    Thanks, everyone! I wish I’d done a better job of showing the chain. I like it a lot. It’s mostly black, but the links have been cut to show bright silver. Cool stuff–wish I had more of it.
