I devoted some time today to finishing off my initial leaf pendant that I started last week and make an additional two. I could have made another three as I have three more spoon heads from this set, but decided to leave those until next week and concentrate on other things.
I’m really pleased with the way these have turned out and now need to buy the right kind of chains to hang them from. I do have some thin belcher chain in stock, but it doesn’t suit the pendants at all – I need something totally plain and simple and I’m thinking either a cable or a snake chain would do. It’s difficult to see what these are actually like from the catalogue/website, so I’m looking for advice! Also the end caps for the snake chain are out of stock on the Cookson Gold site, so will need to give them a ring in the morning to find out when they’re expecting some more.
Anyway here are some pics:
Each leaf is totally unique – the central vein and off-shoots vary with each leaf as do the edges. Some leaves have three indentation down both sides whereas others have just two. I have soldered a d-shaped piece of wire to the back top of each for a chain to be threaded through and that’s what I’m waiting on.
Snake or Cable? mmm… not sure.
