Jewelry Pendants: Triple Shell Pendant
by Rose Smith
(Chepstow, Monmouthshire, UK)
A very elegant and artistic piece of shell jewelry, crafted by Rose.
Description: Rose takes three small shells and transforms them into this exquisite pendant, utilizing wire wrapping.
My friend, again, hands me three tiny shells, and asks if I can make something of them for her niece. Her sister had seen some of my jewelry and wondered if I could make something special for her daughter when she got older.
I went home with the shells thinking, how, how, how, they are so tiny...then I remembered the tutorial I had wanted to do that included multiple stones/crystals and thought..OK I will give it a go.
It is mostly 'free form', ie. you make it as you go along, with the basic rules of wire wrapping.
It took me three hours, I loved doing it, and will make more now.
I used craft wire, as she did not want to spend a fortune on it, but it does look good even if I say so myself for a first attempt.
Even my husband says, "It is gorgeous," an unusual statement for him...
Let me know what you think? I do really look forward to helpful comments.
