Enough With The Rings Already…


Well, at least for now anyway. I really do love to make and wear rings and believe that one can never have too many! But, I’ll take a temporary break from them and concentrate on pendants for awhile.  I love to wear pendants on neck rings and am always careful to create bails that are large enough to slip on and off…one neck ring that works with several pendants lends a good deal of fashion mileage!  The lower portion of this sterling silver pendant holds an amethyst-colored vintage glass scarab although with the light reflection in this photo it looks more like the profile of a woman’s face! Connected with a nail head link, the upper portion is set with a pale green domed 
varasite cabochon.  To achieve the look of antiquity, I dipped the silver in liver of sulfur to darken the metal and enhance the textured surfaces of the bezel surrounds.
