Steele Flower

About this design:

The pendant was cut out of nickel silver using a saw, stamped and then etched. I usually do not name my work but this reminded me of steel with the quartz and gray colored crystals.


Pendant is nickel silver strung with tourmilated quartz ovals, black jade rounds and gray crystals.

    Your neck lace turned out very nice. Good thing I’m getting new glasses…drawn in by the black and white ….I initially didn’t see the pendant in the first photo. Seems to match the brick…but by clicking on the image and then seeing the other photos you posted…I see it clearly now. I have yet to try cutting out metal …looks like fun!

    Thank you. Actually the saw and I don’t get along too well. The key is to relax and not force it but I have trouble doing that. I always want to rush it.

    Thank y’all for the comments. I wished I had rotated my photos but didn’t realize they needed to be rotated before I posted. Silly me!

    Gorgeous! My vision is equally bad-I didn’t see the pendant in the first photo either (even with my very strong contacts), until I went back and checked! Ah well, I saw it in the next photo and the whole piece is gorgeous! Brilliantly done-keep it up! =^___^=
