I’ve been working on this new kind of pendant, gothic style but without chains or other dangling bits. I used dichroic glass cabs as a base, I’ve got about a whole drawer of them in various colours. These pendants are quite big, but next time I will try to find out how small a cab can I use in such a creation.
I buy a lot of handmade glass, and this time I bought “seconds”, which means some of the cabs had melted together or were chipped or had some other “flaws”. This cab had a tiny red cab melted into it (as seen on the photo), which I loved immediately and decided to use as an advantage and a creative opportunity, as I had beads of the same colour and even the same kind of shiny finish. Unfortunately I ended up covering most of the original red part so that the wire wrapping was sturdy enough to hold everything together. You can still see enough of it to appreciate the idea.
My most popular items are red hearts with black wire, for some reason, so I try to keep some of them in my shop all the time. This is the first 2013 batch. There’s still plenty of time to order before the Valentine’s day.
Available in my Etsy shop.
I tried to go for a slightly victorian look and imitate a filigree with wire wrapping.
