 I'm particularly proud of this piece, largely because it happened mostly by accident.  I was messing around with some copper wire, trying something else, when this flower took shape.  And I thought, "hmmm, but it's kinda one dimensional", and bent the petals a bit to give it a more 3-D look, and really liked that.  Then I added a stone to the center and REALLY liked that, so I broke out the silversmithing gear and went to work.  I ended up with this:



I love it!  The little silver dewdrops, the rainbow moonstone cabochon in the center, which these pictures don't even do justice to - it has so much beautiful orange and blue flash, it's like a sunset captured inside a stone!  



 

It's just a really neat sculptural piece, and I'm pretty pleased that an evening of messing about with wire resulted in this. :)  More pics and info as always, at my Etsy store, which still has the same active coupon code for 10% off through the holidays.

Gorgeous! I am very *sadface* that I'm broke right now.

Thanks! :) I was really pleased and surprised with how nicely it turned out, especially since I've never really liked flower pendants before.

Maybe it will still be available when times are better, and if not, I can always make something custom, and just for you!

Thank you! It is even prettier in person. I struggled a LOT with the photos on this one.

Wow! That moonstone is gorgeous! I'm actually really starting to like copper these days!
