Week 8-Peruvian Pendant



This week's theme was godesses, specifically Freya, who is a Norse godess. This pendant is more suitable for an Incan godess though. It consists of a large citrine colored hydro quartz brio wrapped in a sterling silver Peruvian inspired frame. The dangling beads are iolite. I'm not feeling the color combination though. Maybe it's because I graduated from Michigan State and these are U of M colors. LOL Maybe I would like it better with amethyst. Or maybe I should oxidize it. Opinions?

  7. That is a beautiful piece! Did you use a crimp bead just under the bail? I'm trying to figure out how you finished the bail if that is a simple bead.

  8. Thanks, Danielle! No crimp. I used a large hole bead and was able to run the two wires back through it and finish with a small curl on the end.
