Art Deco Influenced Pendant

The color challenge for this week encompassed shades of purple, purple-pinks and saturated green. My muse was so not into this color palette! But!...there is a shade of purple in the Fall Fashion Forecast. And!...I'm seeing deeper shades of purple on the racks at stores. Also!...if a color looks good on you, are you supposed to avoid it due to the fashion divas not including it? Nope!

I combined Sterling Silver and Phosphor Bronze for the frame of the pendant. Stones of choice are Amethyst, Green Garnet and...yes...Swarovski Tanzanite AB Crystals!

The chain consists of Copper links highlighted with Tanzanite Swarovski Crystals. The 18 inch length is completed with Copper Rolo Chain.

I think the natural aging process will develop a really nice patina!
