Turquoise Paisley Pendant
Week 30 for the color challenge group is Rusted Teal.
This piece evolved from cutting three pieces of wire which include sterling silver, copper and true bronze. The lengths vary from 8 1/2 to 7 inches. And I basically let the wire do what it wanted to do. A little chain was tossed in for texture.
Of course it screamed out for turquoise! To play off of the copper wire, I added vintage copper beads from www.thunderbirdsupply.com
I then combined turquoise and chocolate brown Greek leather to fashion a neck cord.
A simple pair of sterling silver earrings with vintage copper beads will be tossed into the mix!
