My sister recently came back from her honeymoon in Costa Rica with a few souvenirs, one of which was a Love Stone given to her upon their arrival in the country. She immediately saw the potential for a possible pendant, and almost immediately after having this thought, she handed it off to me for completion. Love you too, babe 🙂
No, just kidding! You know I LOVE this stuff!
But how do you make a stone into a pendant…hmmmm
I gathered some frequent tools for jewelry making, plus some different gauge wire (18 & 26 Gauge). I had no real plan other than playing with wrapping wire around, until I was satisfied. I think the two sizes of wire give it some dimension, while still displaying the beautiful stone.
I also quickly made the chain by using exisiting chainlink and adding a clasp at the end, about 18″ length. I like how the wires intersect, holding the stone across, like a hug, and then securring it with an ‘X’ shape so it won’t shift inside.
Well, I hope she likes it, and enjoys it as a special memory from her honeymoon! I guess we’ll see…keep you posted!
Turns out she loves it!!!
