A friend really liked the Tiny Clear Earrings With Aqua and Gold I had posted earlier, and asked if I had a pendant that went with the earrings. I didn’t have one, so I created a custom pendant for her to make up a set.
Here are a couple of photos of the front of the pendant. I included two shots since the lighting on the right image shows that the resin is actually clear. (too much glare in the outdoor shots!)
The rectangular piece is clear resin with tiny aqua glass beads and tiny gold beads floating inside. Instead of simply attaching a bail to the top of a resin, I decided to sculpt an asymmetric piece that covers one corner of the resin. I used polymer clay and embedded some wire at the top to act as a bail. Metallic powder was applied to give the clay an antiqued gold look, and finished it with some clear resin embellishments.
Here are some additional shots of the pendant from different angles:
It was a bit of a challenge to create a snug fit between the resin and the corner piece, but well worth it to give it a different look. I hope she likes it!
