Cherry Fizz

About this design:

I had the Cherry quartz left over from another project, purchased the freeform pendant, and made another attempt at some wirework. I was more pleased with this bail than some of my other efforts. This is another grandchildren photo.


Cherry Quartz pendant, beads, & rondelles, 20 ga. silver wire, beads, and clasp.

    I love this. How much? Is that tacky of me? Well if it is here is my email I’ll appologize now if I was tacky. I really do like this it went straight into my favs. I’ll figure it out later. I am sure I won’t be able to make as pretty a wire work as you did but maybe I should give it a try. I certainly like the design.

    Very very nice! Love the wire work, I was trying to wrap a tear drop onyx pendant with a swirl from the bottom, but it keeps moving around…maybe I will try so,ething like this from the top, I love it!!

    Thank you all so much! I want to do the wirework so badly, but I’m not real consistant with the results yet. This is probably the best one so far.

    Susan Z, I did the same thing with this pendant. I was just never happy with any swirl I did from the bottom. Keep trying, it’ll come together!
