I just can't seem to get away from my favorite glass shape - the pyramid! Here I created an oval to set off the diamond shape, 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: 1 1/4" high and 5/8" wide. Woven accent pieces are 12 mm square.
Chain: The included sterling silver chain has large enough links that you can clasp it anywhere, making it versatile enough to work with almost any neckline.
Materials (all alloys are nickel free!):
Silver: Argentium Sterling Silver (the new tarnish resistant silver), Chain is traditional Sterling Silver
Gold Mix (Rose/Yellow): Rose and Yellow 14/20 Gold Fill wire
