History of a jewel: a sterling silver pendant II


I have already said that I don't like autumn and winter at all. I desperately want my spring and summer back, aghh!!. Well, I know that I cannot do anything about that. Though, I can still design and create things that remind me of my favorite seasons and cheer me up! So, last week I created a pendant inspired by flowers. I used sterling silver 925 and a turquoise cabochon.

I was too lazy to design in by hand, so I used CAD software.




Hammering




I couldn't decide which cabochon to choose. Red jade, amethyst or turquoise? At the end, I chose turquoise because it's a summer color.




Soldering


...et voila!


Finally, me featuring the pendant.


Now, I am in a better mood! I can wear my pendant knowing that spring is not too far!! Happy week everyone!

so exciting watching this evolve step by step. I think this flower would also make gorgeous earrings. I swear I'd attach them to my ears till Spring had sprung!

This is absolutely stunning....what an amazing pice of work!

The Haute-Shopper said...

Beautiful! What a gorgeous piece! Thanks also for sharing the creative process behind it... most people I know sketch their designs, so it was fascinating for me to see you use software for the design :) I really know what you mean about the autumn/winter months though... I find myself wearing more bright stuff in winter, just to cheer myself up!

Wishing you a wonderful weekend!
