This is the third pendant…

in a series that I’ve made using various components anchored on the egg and/or bird’s nest theme.  I’ve used a curved fine silver cast twig wrapped with sterling wire.  A 2.5mm moonstone sits at one end and a large black pearl dangles from the center of the twig.  Swinging from hammered bronze wires embellished with  bronze gear beads and small round bone beads is a tiny polymer clay egg wrapped with a strip of sterling silver sheet anchored with two brass nails and encased with lengths of hammered sterling silver wire   The finishing touch is a petite polymer clay bird perched on top of the egg.   The pendant is suspended from a 30″ chain made of steel links.  You’ll find this pendant at Brio Gallery in Galena, Illinois.
