Shell-Raspberry pendant

liz_sept2013gThis long pendant is made of three different materials set over a base made of metal clay. The top bezel sets a rhodochrosite stone. The middle one sets a pretty shell. The last bottom one sets a cluster of pink topaz beads. Looks like a little raspberry, doesn't it? How it was made: The metal frame was made using metal clay. The top two, stone and shell, were attached using Net Bezel Technique, stitched on to the metal clay frame.

If you look at the picture showing the back, you'll notice that the clay frame is a simple BLOB with a few holes poked through. The thin wire was STITCHED on to the frame. Fun and easy!
