I finally got to make something that required more time and attention than my usual stuff. This pendant is a rough quartz point that looks more or less like an icicle, hence the post title. It’s not particularly tricky to make a double sided pendant, it just takes more time. And I really thought that making it just one sided would look strange. I’m not sure if it came out wintery enough, though, as I got carried away with the wire wrapping and I’m not sure if it suits the idea. Also, the wire is somewhat too warm in tone (and I was out of the grey one). So you be the judge(s).
I gave up. I bought sterling silver wire, and decided to make a few items for those who whine that copper jewellery is not “true jewellery”.
Sterling silver is not bad to work with, the wire I’ve got is softer than the silver plated copper I’m used to, so it’s easier not to make mistakes. Unfortunately it’s also about ten times more expensive.
This agate slab just rocks! It reminds me of frost, or a winter forest. Lovely! I decided it deserves to be wrapped in sterling silver (especially that other wire colours didn’t look that nice on it, it had to be cold and frosty). I added some white howlite beads for decoration as well.
