Twirly pendant

This pendant is a gift for my mom's birthday. (Well, sorta since she's a leap year baby and didn't technically have a birthday this year.) I picked up the lampwork bead at the One of a Kind Show in Toronto back in the fall. I came up with a sorta new design. Usually when I make earrings and pendants I have a flat swirl at the bottom. This time I twisted it around and stretched it out. I think it looks pretty cool. I grabbed the crystals this morning not remembering the colour of the focal bead, but they're a perfect fit! How often do thinks work out that wonderfully? (I also bought sapphire-coloured crystals - so beautiful and on sale! My two favourite things!)

  1. I like the cone-shaped swirl! I usually make a flat spiral too... I might steal your idea.
