YOJ Week 13 - Lemon Quartz Pendant

I enjoyed so much making the ring with the net bezel, so I decided to make a bigger piece for a necklace. I used an irregular lemon quartz nugget, which is rather large (the nugget alone measures 1-1/4 inches high). The smaller beads attached to the frame are champagne quartz of very high quality. The underlying structure was made with 22 ga wire coiled with 28ga. The net was finished off with tiny vermeil thai beads. The pendant has a woven bail and was strung with lemon quartz, champagne quartz and vermeil beads.
