New style pendant

Thursday, October 29, 2009
Well, the tax is done (bleck!!!) and as soon as I could shove all the receipts into a folder and hide it at the back of the filing cabinet, I bought my first tutorial from Jewelry lessons. I'd been salivating over Earrings by Erins gorgeous style for a while, and I thought I'd try her way of wrapping cabs. This is her beautiful pendant, click the picture to follow the link.
So, me being me, I read through the tutorial, got the basics, and like a bull at a gate, off I went. Well, it wasn't as much of a disaster as it probably should have been (I did follow the basics, after all ;) and here's what I came up with.
For starters, symmetry and I aren't really great mates so I chose an asymmetrical style. The amethyst cab I used was muuuuuch smaller than the one she had pictured so the designs over the face probably look a bit heavy, but I'm happy with it.

Here's the back - as pretty (if not prettier) than the front!

I also got her gorgeous earring tutorial, so I'll keep you posted when I try those.

The turquoise colored stone pendant is gorgeous !
I love the stone and the way you've crafted the metal to work with it .
