The (late) birthday pendant from my earlier post has now been received. While I had the pendant completed in time, I spent ages trying to get the cord right. In the end I had to make myself stop and send it anyway.

It is a blue tigers eye, with a polymer clay bezel set with glass beads. It is strung on a multiple strands (rattail, hand twisted viscose and a strand of  gunmetal bugle beads).

This was devilishly difficult to photograph – trying to capture the fire in the stone but not my reflection (and huge black camera lens).

My inspiration in making this piece (after finding the beautiful stone) was the work of Chris Kapono and this free tutorial by Christi Friesen.
