What materials did you use? My original idea for this was to create a paisley shape, from that concept, I developed this necklace. The central pendant is made using a variety of techniques, the main frame is shaped and hammered, to give the wire a textured finish. I have then added matt olive seed beads and used the wrapping to create a pattern around the frame. I have then used delicate knot work to form a bezel to secure a faceted oval Peridot bead to the centre with a faceted citrine sitting above it. The necklace is made with handmade links of copper wire of varying gauges, which mirror the shape of the main pendant, these are alternated with herringbone wrapped citrine bead links. The multi strand necklace is made with matt olive seed beads with Citrine and Peridot, finished with handmade wire cones. The whole piece has been oxidised This necklace was named by Helen Cumberland, who was the winner of a competition I ran on my facebook page. I really liked this name as it not only described the shape of the main pendant perfectly, it also made reference to this shapes being repeated through the necklace. Thank you and well done Helen! Thank you to everybody that took part, It has been really interesting to see how a design is viewed through other peoples eyes :) Necklace length 18 Pendant height 1 2/3 width 2/3
