Sitting Pretty Pendants

It's been a while since I blogged but I'm still here! I have just started a new part-time teaching job and with that, and my other part-time job and all that goes with being a mum and a wife, my jewellery making has had to take a back seat. I still go to bed thinking about designs as I fall asleep (which I find much more relaxing than thinking 'What do I have to do tomorrow?') but those designs will have to wait a while, whilst my life settles down.

Anyway, here is a pendant I made a couple of weeks ago and have just listed in all my online shops (Etsy, Folksy and Dawanda). It is based on my 'Sitting Pretty' earrings I made last year but this time with a sparkling gemstone adorned in the centre of the fine silver flower.

Here's another Sitting Pretty Pendant I made for myself. I love rhodolite garnet. It seems to satisfy my need to wear pink without being too 'girly' and co-ordinates beautifully with my ever-growing purple wardrobe! (I have a current addiction to purple clothes - any shade considered).

Kyanite Blossom Frame Pendant

I had some fun at the weekend developing my 'Wire Blossoms' design to create this blossom frame pendant. It was quite a challenge for me to puzzle out how to thread the wire through and around the bead.

This pendant hasn't found it's name yet and is looking for one to go with the rest of my Wire Blossom range. Currently, I have already made Luscious Blossoms, Mystical Blossoms, Magical Blossoms, Divine Blossoms, Icy Blossoms and Golden Blossoms.... any suggestions for this one?
