Persephone Pendant by magpie-poet Persephone Pendant by magpie-poet
For the :iconartisancraft: Friday project. Hopefully it's forgivable that I did this in the middle of the week :p

14K gold fill, rutilated quartz, almandine and rhodolite garnet.

I'll admit the vinage got away from me here. But it's growing on me :D (Okay, I'm very sorry, but I'm on lots of allergy meds, bear with me!)

As usual, one attempt at an artsy shot and then a hell with it hand shot to actually show the colors. Fun clear rutilated quartz with an almost star like cluster towards one side, nice and sharp. Carved garnets showing up again, and a really dark almandine garnet cab. I hate to say it, but there's a jellybeanish quality to it. Looks dark almost to the point of matte, then the light hits it and *boom* dramatic flash of *RED*

This piece is sold, but for similar pieces check out my shop @ [link]

I love it!  It looks like a vintage perfume bottle.  I adore the little swirls/viney bits.

Thank you, for the compliments both on the piece and the photo :) I have so much trouble catching the beauty of the stones it drives me nuts some days. (Okay, I'm nuts all days, but the photo taking really pushes it...)

Thank you. I know I've got to start tiptoeing away from my usual mixes, but I've so much trouble buying stones I'm less fond of.

I'm so annoyed at myself. I made my aunt one with an opal doublet and rhodocrosite, then wrapped it before I remembered to take a photo. *sigh* I wanted evidence that I actually did work with a pink stone at some point ;)

As if your single stone wraps weren't gorgeous enough, you had to go and stick two stones together....

Okay, "stick together" doesn't do it any kind of justice at all--it's beautiful. Great mix of stones and colors.

Stick together is fair.
