Here is a new pendant I finished today. I am working through a new-to-me technique: wire weaving. Much like with string, weaving with metals is taking a long piece of wire in, around, through, other pieces of metal. This pendant will be part of my Terra Riche Collection very soon!
I used copper wire on this, though I plan to soon try this technique with silver wire. The beads are turquoise dyed magnesite and solid copper with ridges. Magnesite is naturally very light in color but takes dyes very well, making it a nice alternative for many who cannot afford more expensive natural turquoise stones but love the color.
