Last year, I figured out how to make the woven metal under the glass really tiny - only 6mm! I just can't get enough of these little tiny pieces of woven depths goodness. Here I created an oval to set off the tiny square, reminiscent of the cartouches put around the names of ancient pharaohs.
To create the focal piece for this pendant, I weave sheets of fabric,from either silver or rose & yellow 14/20 gold fill wire using a medieval fingerweaving technique. Then I cut this fabric into smaller pieces to embed behind the pyramid shaped glass. The glass both magnifies the weave, giving it more definition, as well as collecting the light, which makes the entire piece glisten.
Size: 7/8" high and 3/8" wide. Woven accent pieces are 6 mm square.
The earwires are nickel free, and are the new no-slip variety. These earwires actually have little "speed-bumps" on the back to help prevent them from slipping back out of the ear. I have sensitive ears myself, and can wear these with no problem.
Materials (all alloys are nickel free!):
Silver: Argentium Sterling Silver (the new tarnish resistant silver)
Gold Mix (Rose/Yellow): Rose and Yellow 14/20 Gold Fill wire
