Sun on Bubbles by ChaosFay Sun on Bubbles by ChaosFay
When I sent the glass portion of the pendant to *balthasarcraft I had no idea what she'd do with it. As soon as it I received the finished pendant my mind went only to one place: bubbles. The blue swirl of the glass looks like water when the light bends through bubbles as they rise, the beads are the bubbles, and the gold wire the sunlight. It was just too perfect. I knew instantly that my wave pattern had to be used, but not wide. It had to be kept slim. The waves at the top are gold representing the sunlight moving over the water as the bubbles rise, the blue beads the bubbles. I could go on about this, but it's so obvious I don't think I need to.

Made using COTTON not hemp, glass pearls, glass pendant, gold wire, and seed beads. If memory serve the wire is made completely of gold. I'm not sure. If you're allergic to all metal but gold please talk to *balthasarcraft at her etsy shop about it. She'll be able to tell you what she used.

Yes.  *balthasarcraft made the pendant after I sent her the glass swirly part.  I felt the glass was too plain.  She did her magic on it and created a story with the visual.  I went with what I saw in it, and in turn created this choker.  There's a whole bunch of pieces in my etsy shop that have pendants made by her. We make a good team, I think, and have been in a state of constant trading for over two years now.  I send her supplies and she sends me a few pieces she makes.  :D
