I was one of the lucky winners of the Art Jewelry Elements component of the month. I am very excited to be participating. I received a beautiful blue enamel pendant with fine silver pebbles made by Francesca Watson. I had a couple of ideas in mind, but executing the design in your head does not always work out as planned.
I got the pendant embellished with faceted ruby rondelles and a smooth apatite rondelle, but had a hard time creating a chain that would complement the component. Many links were formed and I almost resorted to putting it on a ready made chain, but I really wanted to make the chain. I finally made a simple chain with sterling balls for the beads to pick up the fine silver pebbles on the pendant and used one ruby link in the chain.
I very happy with my final design. Thank you Francesca for a beautiful pendant and Art Jewelry Elements for an oppurtunity to participate and for all the inspiration that you provide.
