Handmade Sodalite, Pearl, Jasper And Rock Crystal Pendant
On this rock crystal pendant, I have teamed two colours of freshwater cultured pearls, blue dyed jasper and rock crystal with sodalite beads, one large centrepiece oval bead and one smaller doughnut shaped bead within the cluster. The colours of the beads that make up the cluster have been picked out to showcase all the colours within the sodalite beads.
This is one of my personal favourite bead combinations and one I love to repeat and change up the beads now and again. I also wear it myself quite a lot too. It’s great for a more informal or relaxed weekend look with jeans.
The main body of the pendant is made up by a sterling silver chain from which the beads are all hanging with the aid of wrapped headpins.. Six sterling silver headpins hold the seven beads, three white freshwater pearls, one peacock freshwater pearl, that are making up the upper cluster part of the pendant and the large sodalite is hanging from a larger beaded end headpin.
The use of different shaped beads, I think, really adds interest to this pendant as they add an interesting silhouette to the pendant. The freshwater pearls used in this colour collection are peacock pearls and white pearls.
This rock crystal pendant could be hung from a short or long chain or a wire collar, depending on the look you want. It is shown on a complementary coloured wire, which I can make into a five strand wire necklace upon request..
There are coordinating pieces available which would really cement the statement of colour.
The bead measurements are – sodalite 18mm by 14mm, rock crystal 6mm by 10mm, white pearls 4mm by 7mm. the peacock pearl is 6mm and the dyed blue jasper has a 5mm diameter.
