Repurposed Steel Pendant

About this design:

I've had a 2 x 1/2-inch trough of rusted steel on my desk for a year and I decided to solder an old, odd gold filled earring to the top as a bale. I piled tumbled amethysts, citrine and peridot in the trough, accenting the mix with a brass wire spiral and a gold plated copper 10mm wavy rondelle.

    Lovely.. . for some reason it makes me think of an elegant succulent dish-garden I saw on a CEO’s desk – you know, one of those that you buy for $100.00 in a big city hospital gift shop. It has the same kind of “statement” look, but it won’t die!
