Pearly strands continued…

wp-image-143671811jpg.jpgThis pendant was the starting point.  A pearl encased in copper wrapping.

I thought of turning it into a set; hoping that it can be re-created as a hanging earring and not just a pendant. Well, the story ended with turning it into a necklace rather than earrings.

I guess some of you are asking why not earrings? Why a necklace?  See for yourself ..

The shape of the original piece lent itself to the finished product. It could not be made smaller or the full design could not be accomplished; therefore by adding the earring hook would have meant a set of wearable jewellery that would have been too long and thus the pearl would have been lost.

The piece now has a hand made chain attached to it with hand made clasps.
