I’ve never made a necklace like this before:
In this case, the pendant started out it’s life intending to be one of a pair of earrings. It didn’t work out because the shapes came out uneven. I didn’t want to scrap the whole project though so I added a couple of jump rings and a lemon quartz briolette and this pendant was born.
It seemed inappropriate to hang this on a chain–it was begging for something more choker-like. It would’ve been fairly easy to make my own neckwire, but I was lazy and purchased a ready-made one from Rio Grande. I might have to make it slightly smaller–I haven’t decided yet.
Overall though I do like this necklace, if only because I don’t have anything else like it.
