This piece started out as three hand-made lamp work beads. I had no idea what to do with them for over a month. One day I decided I was going to make something with them if it killed me. I had wanted to try a woven bail treatment and I thought this would be the perfect piece to try it out. Once the main pendant was completed the rest of the necklace just sort of made itself.
The pendant is made with 20 gauge sterling silver wire wrapped in 28 gauge fine silver wire. The three drops each contain a 4mm Swarovski crystal and faceted glass drop in purple. The hand made chain is made with links of decorative “S” loops and hearts in 16, 18 and 20 gauge sterling silver wire. The two smaller lamp work beads have been wrapped in 20 gauge and 26 gauge sterling silver wire.
The pendant measures 3″ from the top of the bail to the bottom of the lowest drop. The necklace measures 20″ not including the pendant.
