Tackle that stash - Classic elegance

If you make a bezel for a stone, there are three things you want. You want to compliment the look of the stone without hiding too much of it, you want the stone to sit safely in its setting and you want the piece to have your own style.

With wire crochet or wire knit it's not always easy to make sure the first two work together in the best way.
This last pendant I made features a dark green cabochon in a golden wire knit setting. It was the first time for me working on the edge in a way that not only shows most of the beautiful stone, but also a delicate golden border.
A lovely pearl is adding a little movement to the pendant - yes, I still am in "dangly mode"! ;-)


You can find this in my DaWanda shop now.
