More on the project piece

Well, here is the latest on the project piece. I'm feeling pretty happy with it so far. I think the body of the pendant is now done, but you never know:) Now to work on the chain part of it. You can see where I've put my peridot clusters. It looks a bit top-heavy at the moment, but my intention is to really bulk up the chain with more gorgeous gems and it will all balance out. We shall see eh?

I'm still enjoying a visit with my mom, but she has to leave in a couple of days. :( I'll be off to San Francisco Wed and Thursday for the trip to the airport. The good news of that trip is that we'll all get a chance to go to the California Academy of Sciences which is a building in Golden Gate Park that contains a planetarium, rain forest, aquarium, natural history museum, and a green "living" roof. I can't wait!

This turned out really cool!!!! It had promised to be a beauty right from the start. Sent you a message on your new Etsy shop from my new Etsy shop :-).

Anyone would feel like a queen wearing that absolutely gorgeous piece, Shay! I'm drooling already! And the planetarium is gorgeous, I went there some years back when I was still in the US, I played with bubbles till my friends dragged me out...

Thanks Swati -- I'll go check that message:) I still haven't quite got that store together yet, but will work on it more after the visit. Hugs to you!

Shuku.. lol.. I'll take the comment on bubbles as a warning for myself not to get too distracted there!

Hi Shay, Wow, this is just amazing. Incredibly beautiful.

Hey, enjoy your trip!

I love this piece, and can't wait to see it with the chain. You're right, it needs both weight and color to transition from the weight of the pendant. Just lovely.

Have a good time on your trip!

Kathleen, Sandi, Lola, Beverly, Deborah, and SassyGlass....

Thank you! LOL.. I feel like I'm cheating lumping you all into one post. In my head I'm writing you all long personal thank you's :) The trip to the city was great and we had lots of fun running (just about literally) around trying to fit in the academy in a day. Glad to be home now. ;)

Lola D said...

Thanks Ms. Shay! How are you doing with the pendent?

Shay Stone said...

Hey Lola:) I haven't had a chance to work on it since this post. I think it just needs to hang out for a bit and get a break from me and my nosy pliers! Hopefully I'll get to work on it soon though. Hugs to ya:)
