See the previous Soup Post for all the links to hop. But since I was having a problem with Blogger today (I already had to redo my post from this morning), I decided to post the close-ups separately, as everytime I uploaded a photo, it would create havoc with my spacing and formatting. My post this morning was a milling miles long with all of the extra spaces it put into it.
I hope you enjoy what I made! I had a lot of fun working with the two beautiful pendants that my partner, Dana James, sent to me. One of them is reversible, and both pictures are very different in color tones, one bright and the other dreamy. So it was a challenge to make something that would compliment both sides. I decided to put it on a chain by itself and then to create another shorter necklace in the blue and green tones that seemed to be in both of them. I really like how it turned out and how different it looks depending on which side of the focal is out. She also sent me this pretty floral clasp. And I, of course, had to make matching earrings. I'm very big on always having things as a "set". I know some people are good at mixing and matching different things together, which I admire, but I also like the option of not having to think too hard early in the morning by figuring out it those earrings go with this necklace.
Here is a close-up of the focal pendant, both sides:
