Raindrops: Sparkly Small Pendant Featuring Handwoven Wire and Fused Glass in Silver or Gold Mix

If you love compliments, this is the necklace for you! Featuring a unique combination of techniques, this distinctive pendant showcases a sparkling display of woven metal under layers of fused glass - creating an almost kaleidoscopic effect when you move. The twists of the wire behind the glass create the kind of brilliance normally associated with cut crystal and diamonds. The fused glass "raindrops" distort the look of the underlying woven metal, creating a piece guaranteed to get second looks.

To create this pendant, first I weave sheets of fabric from thin gauge wire using a medieval finger weaving technique. Then, I cut this woven metal fabric into smaller pieces to embed behind the shaped glass. The different shapes of glass both magnify the weave, giving it more definition, as well as collect the light, making the entire piece glisten. Enjoy!

 

 

• Each pendant comes with an 18 or 20 inch, 2.2mm drawn flat cable chain made from .925 sterling silver or 14K gold fill with a spring ring clasp.

• Optional: Add $9.95 for the magnet clasp upgrade. I'll replace the spring ring clasp with a magnet clasp to make the necklace even easier to put on and off.

• Pendants are packaged with an anti-tarnish tab in a gift box with anti-tarnish filler, which makes for easy gifting and storage.

Silver:  Argentium Sterling Silver - this is the low tarnish sterling silver alloy made from 100% recycled silver.

Gold: I'm using both yellow and rose 14K gold fill in my designs. Gold fill is 1/20th gold by weight, so it's a good compromise in quality and price between 14K gold and gold plate.
