Beauty and the Beast by Gweyeni Beauty and the Beast by Gweyeni
This whimsical double-sided pendant features fancy floral filigree on one face and a weathered gargoyle on the other.

Measuring 27 mm (1.125 inches) in diameter, the Fine Silver was carefully formed from Precious Metal Clay – particles of pure silver in an organic binder. The binder burns out during firing, leaving only .999 fine silver behind. This solid silver was then polished to a high shine and antiqued to better show detail.

A single yellow CZ sparkles from the center of the filigree side.

The 23.5 inch rosary-style chain is composed of freshwater pearls which I hand wrapped with sterling silver wire. One small citrine rondelle accents each side 4 inches above the pendant. The clasp is a 7mm sterling silver spring ring.

The two side photos show a detail of the front and back of the pendant before I attached it to the chains.



See what else I have available in my [ArtFire Studio] and [Etsy Shop].

really beautiful work! you've given me a great idea for the stone I inherited from my grandmother... you have also made me jealous and wish I could craft jewelry. :) Can't wait to see what you do next.
