Warm Earth Tones in a Chainmail Celtic Star Pendant

For more views and sale info, click this link.

Some people think chainmail (or chain maille, or chain mail, etc.) jewelry must be heavy. But this warm color Celtic star pendant is made of lightweight anodized aluminum rings. Each of the rings was opened with two pair of pliars, placed in the pattern, and then carefully closed again.

The colors are perfect for fall. The pendant measures about 1.25 inches across (3 cm). I put the pendant on a cable necklace which uses a small magnetic clasp. This makes the necklace easy to get on or take off. The pendant is bright and shiny and can be easily removed from the cable choker for use with another necklace.

This is one of many chain mail pendants I have listed on ArtFire. They are available in many colors, including hot pink!

Dichroic Glass in Jewelry and Pendants

For more image and sales info click this link

Dichroic glass is amazing and beautiful! There are reports that it was a creation of NASA and there are also indications that those stories are not true. Whatever the inspiration for this marvelous material, it is incredible. Pendants made from dichroic glass seem to shimmer as if metallic and lit from the inside. They sparkle and change with every little movement and are thus most difficult portray in a photograph.

This particular pink, blue and teal necklace is about 18 inches long and its pendant uses sterling silver for the bail. The clasp is also sterling silver.

This is one of several pendant necklaces I have listed on ArtFire. They are in many colors.

Olive Green Ocean Waves Pendant with Necklace

Peaceful and soothing olive green pendant necklace, click here for more images and sale info.

Harmony, healing,and peace -- those are all represented by the olive green color -- seem to be created around the lovely ocean waves depicted in this one-of-a-kind glass pendant crafted right in Florida! When I first saw this pendant the power of its waves, and yet the peacefulness associated with waves, begged to be made in to a matching beautiful olive green necklace.

Tiny bits of silver within the glass pendant are reminiscent of bubbles found in swirling waters. This pendant/necklace combination is perfect for one who loves the ocean, beach, or as a reminder of vacations and walks on the shore.

Open Spiral Pendant with Shiny Black Beads

This swirling spiral pendant and shiny black beaded necklace evokes mystery -- click here for more images and details.

in creating this necklace I wanted to keep the aura of mystery that the swirl embodies. I found that two series of round black beads in graduated sizes, on either side of the pendant, worked perfectly to add to the mystery of this captivating pendant. The pendant itself includes a silver-plated glide-type bail so the swirl is free to travel left and right on the necklace.
