I decided that my design should stay fairly simple to show off this wonderful pendant, but wanted to incorporate some color. I found these pretty serpentine beads that I was saving for a rosary and decided to do a necklace of wrapped links. Serpentine is one of my favorite stones and this strand had such wonderful autumnal colors that really work well with copper. I decided to add a bit more weight and paired the wrapped links with some small copper chain from my stash.
I punched an additional hole in Kristi's focal so that I could dangle a bead below...unfortunately I didn't have any serpentine briolettes, but this quartz one has the right pale celadon green shade to pair with the serpentine.
Quirky me decided at the last minute to add a bead to one of the holes in the pendant, just for another bit of color and fun...I used a copper headpin and a round copper disc in the back to hold the bead in place. I am not sure I like my clasp...I may try to come up with something different that doesn't distract, or possibly move the clasp to the back (gasp!).
Here is the list of other designers who created...go show them some love!
