Spirit of Doves




Just the one pic today- a mock up of a 'fringe charm' pendant. That's my name for a cluster pendant that hangs from individual holes rather than clustered on one hoop. I can make shit up- I'm an artist! Our job description practically reads 'make shit up'.

Things in here include antique buttons, citrine, quartz, howlite, shell, fish vertebrae and carved bone. I like the way the gold triangle on the center pendant echos the little citrine triangle on the left. That was an accident! I'm awesome that way. I might swap that fat cowrie over with the citrine triangle drop, so there's a balance of white oval things.

Beautiful! I like how my make things up. It's much more pleasant than the obscure, made-up names advertisers use for ingredients in toiletries or medicines....like that will make us run out and buy them.

And I agree with your switching the cowrie with the citrine because it will balance out the sides a bit more evenly in regards to bead size.

I think part of the my joy in making things is coming up with names for the elements. It's the final name that I have the problem with.
I can already see that this piece is going to be a winner.
Did this come already drilled or did you do it?

It looks so peaceful! Makes me want to head to the ocean - or dance in the moonlight ... In agreeance ree cowrie swap - it draws the eye because it is pretty solid. Will you wire wrap the other bits on? Look forward to seeing the end result.
