Coral Reef Treasure

More experimentation with the needle lace technique applied to wire. This seemed the natural next step … a netted bezel. This is the most incredible specimen of fossilized coral I’ve ever seen. The stone itself is just stunning. I knew it deserved something special. I captured it in a netted bezel and added a sandy brown swarovski crystal element for sparkle.

I really enjoyed making this pendant … and then staring at it for hours on end afterwards. I considered keeping it for myself, but I was a good girl and decided to list it on my etsy site and give it a chance to sell first. It sold at lightening speed … I miss it so. 🙂 It followed my Tale of a Seahorse necklace to New Zealand. That’s okay. I am sure Annette will take good care of my babies. 🙂
