The last pendant (Sunburst) I made was some time ago and since I have breaks in between some house chores and sending/fetching the children to/from school, I made this. I have not tried making any jewelries with this shape before ~ a marquise focal gemstone which measures about 50cm from top to bottom. These gemstones came in a strand, therefore have varying measurements, colours and no two beads are alike.
Initially, I was a bit hesitant using this focal bead but it turned out very nicely. I hand-coiled the wires surrounding the frame, wire wrapped Swarovski black bicone crystals and the ball ends are actually silver metal beads inserted into the wire and tucked in.
I have since made another piece, also a marquise shape but of a different colour. So, stay tune ....... =)
Thanks for dropping by!
