Last Saturday I taught a box pendant class using a combination of techniques I learned from Gordon Uyehara and from reading Kate McKinnon.
This was the piece I created in the process of demonstrating the techniques. I had a package of tiny fine silver balls and used those along with some syringe work to embellish the area with the pearl. (Actually the need to do embellishing came about because I miscalculated when I drilled my holes for hanging. The pearl was a little too centered for my taste.) Oops, another design technique exposed.
The texture was created with my tear-away, mentioned in a previous post.
