Hi! I’ve been having fun with heart jewelry for upcoming Valentine’s Day. My favorite creation, so far, is my carved heart Dragon Veins Agate Pendant. The “veins” show throughout the stone. Yes, they are even clearer when the agate is dyed, as it is in this case. There is an edge of magenta colored in this stone. The rest of the stone is a greenish blue color. I used colored craft wire to make the bail for the pendant. The colored wire is complementary to the colors in the stone. I made swirls with Swarovski crystal butterflies and bi-cone crystals in them. I designed the chain with magenta and blue bi-cone crystals, along with silver plated spacers, to go with the pendant.
You can see other images of the pendant, along with other jewelry items designed by me in my Etsy Mini shop, which is under the heading, “Shop On Etsy.” My full shop link is www.embellishedcharms.etsy.com. I have 101 items there, now. I’m starting on my second 100. I plan to make everything using high quality materials and good designing, as I did with the first 100 jewelry pieces.
I hope your new year has started out well. I’d love to hear from you about what kind of jewelry you like to wear. Is there something special you would like to see in this blog? Please fill out the Contact Form below to make comments.
