Black Leaf

Must ja kuldne. Üritasin swarovksi kive sättides aimata lehekuju. Kuigi jah, sümmetrianõudeid ei õnnestunudki täita... Ripatsi pikkus on 2,5cm ning kige laiem koht samuti 2,5cm. Peaaegu õnnestus kivide ühendamine nii, nagu tahtsin, kuid see suurem navette jäi hoidma viltu ja nii pidin kogu kupatuse kinnitama metallist "filigraan" plaadikesele. Lihtne kett ning kinnis lasevad ripatsil särada. Kullavärv tundub mulle ikka jube pidulik :) Peaks katsetama sarnast asja mõne tagasihoidlikuma metallitooniga ;)



Black and gold. I tried to make a leaf-shape out of these swarovski stones. Although symmetry wasn't entirely achieved... The pendant is 2,5cm long and also it measures 2,5cm at the widest point. I almost got the result what I wanted when attaching stones in settings with wire. But the largest navette started to tilt and made the whole pendant curve. So I had to attach everything on a stamped filligree to get it right. Simple chain and clasp let the pendant shine. Gold color is awfully festive :) I think I'll try thiskind of style with more modest color ;)

This is very pretty. I never used to like black and gold together, but lately it's been growing on me. I just bought a purse that is black with gold hardware. Now I might need a black and gold necklace! :)

Hello, Christina! Thanks! I have had trouble of liking anything besides copper lately :) I think I should make an effort for using other metals too. Heh, it took some time but now I'm looking that this black/gold combination suits this necklace well :)

Mulle jällegi meeldib kuldne ja must koos! :D
