This pendant didn't come together easily. I could feel the blockage of flow as I was putting it together. Perhaps it was because I had my focus on expected over night company, or the head cold that reared it's ugly symptoms in the next few days, but I felt like I was forcing the design. It did finally come together and it's in the first picture. As for the head cold, well it insists on over staying it's visit, but I am hopeful it will vanish in the near future.
After coping with a sore throat and no motivation, for two days, I woke up with a desire in my head. My goal to complete it in one day. That didn't happen.
Ewww. A teeny, tiny knot in 26 gauge wire. I caught this bad boy just in time.
It's almost formed.
Now that it's formed, I'm thinking it looks too busy. I'll remove the central coiled/twisted wire.v
I went ahead and removed the coiled/twisted wire and then adjusted the weave to fill in the center.
Now I'm going to nurse this cold with a bowl of ice cream. Feed a cold, as the say.
I post more pictures on Instagram and Facebook, than I do her on my blog. Visit me on Facebook at Facebook.com/lindasinishjewelryartisan

I regretted my choice of weave. It's very time consuming with little pattern interest. I needed to add some features. The crystal is large at 24mm.
Here I'm making some progress by adding new weaves and wire embellishments. At this point I'm still not sure of the final design.
At this point I'm a little nervous. I now have a plan and fingers crossed that the wire will agree.
Here she is. The final step is to patina and polish.
Thank you for stopping by. Have a joy filled and creative day!

It's that time of the year when the shoppers are looking for gifts. So, this darling was designed just for them. A 14mm crystal, a bit of weave, some girlie curls and a braided bail. On it's way to the Old Depot in Black Mountain, NC item ppj23 $25.
This bead is not typical of my style, but I was in a colorful mood when I ordered them. The bead is glass. Item ppj22 $25 on its way to the Old Depot.
I resist making sets, because I think its fun to mix things up . But, the idea of making a jumbo version of my best selling earrings was loud and clear in my head when I woke up. I used a purple crystal rondelle on steroids with some 16 ga wire. Pendant item ppj21 $25 along with the earrings item epj31 $22.
Now I've got to get back to working. There is a pile of jewelry that needs to be patinaed and polished.
Have a great day.
