A large dramatic, heart shaped pendant made using a quartz pendant as it's centre. Behind the quartz is a quote from the Rubaiyat of Omar Kayyam, actually I have to confess it's a slight misquote which I didn't notice until the piece was well on it's way.
The pendant has a mount made from rows of hand stitched beads, it is then backed with leather and a final row of beads covers the edge of the two backing materials.
Then comes the fun part, lots of strands of vintage, silver lined beads are suspended from the edge row, each one finished with different beads, pearls and recycled pieces of jewellery.
The pendant is hung by eight loops of the same vintage beads on a vintage lace necklace, edged and wound about with a mix of vintage and modern beads. The necklace is fastened by a vintage button set with white glass gems, which fits through a buttonhole made with bead weaving.
The necklace measures about 45cm and the pendant measures approximately 7.5cm long and about 5cm wide.
This piece is inspired by the recycled milky quartz heart which I bought from a local antique and collectibles market. These quartz pieces always have to have something decorative behind them as they are translucent, almost transparent. It took a while to work out what could go behind this one.
I then took a while to decide what it should hang from, it's such a statement piece it needed something special to hang from.
