An Odd Pendant

About this design:

I've had this odd pendant for quite awhile and never known what to do with it. It's actually a Polychrome Jasper. Anyway...I'm debating on weather or not to keep the heart on it.


Polychrome Jasper pendant, Lapis, Sodalite, Blue Haze Agate, silver chain, ceramic heart and waxed linen

    The monochrome keeper pendant is beautiful! With that said, personally I feel that the heart helps to connect it to the rest of the necklace. If it weren’t for the heart I would feel the pendant didn’t belong on that necklace. I love the necklace and the pendant, just not together.

    The pendant is quite interesting but I can see how it would be a challenge to think of a use for it. I do like the addition of the heart, even though I personally never incorporate hearts because I hate them! LOL. But I am pretty much alone in that and you do need a little something there. People will love the heart. It’s very pretty. Don’t listen to me at all. I can’t say why I don’t like them. It makes no sense, but I give away any that come my way. Anyway, the lapis tubes are also pretty. I like your necklace Sweetjane, heart and all.

    Jane, I love the heart and agree with Pam- it ties it in with the chain. I also like the variations of blue. It’s perfect the way it is!

    sweetjane – I love the pendant with the little heart. The heart has a fascinating pattern and it brings all of the colors together.

    Jane, that is one of the most unique pendents I have ever seen–very cool spot on it. Kinda looks like the ‘time tunnel’ to me. It does create a platform for many possibilities. How big is the focal? I think the ringed chain works well with its size. I like your creative innovation in putting jewelry together. Helps me get my mind out of its box!

    Thanks for all of your comments!! I decided that the heart didn’t belong there….so I put a bit of sari silk there instead…it seems to work better. The only other thing I would have done different is to add another strand.
