Calla Lily - the hand weaved flower

This was the craziest project I've done so far - it took 11 hours of work and meters and meters of the thinnest Fine Silver wire. This pendant is an incarnation of my love to flowers and was created with a company of a little Calla Lily plant sitting on my work table. The wire was weaved on a hand shaped sterling silver frame to form light and airy petal embracing softly its heart - the amazing sparkling Lemon Quartz briolette.

Still refreshing

The next necklace I was working with is the Tiger Eye. I also oxidised it black and then just delicately hand buffed to keep the patina. This way it looks much more romantic and elegant. Also this beeing a small pendant it is now much better visible when worn directly on the skin.

The new pendant is on the right photo.

I've been working on some of my old designs changing them a little (or a lot) and first one I've just finished is the Unfurl The Sail necklace - oxidised black and then only delicately hand buffed to keep the patina.
On the right is the new incarnation of the necklace whicj I'm very pleased with. I think the patina really reveals the weaving pattern at the bottom of the stone and gives a better contrast with the white pearls and the very delicate crystal quartz.
