too much Christmas cheer

Fabricated Sterling and commercial chain.

I’m just playing around with the bells.

Admittedly, it’s a little ridiculous. But it sure was fun.

It’s just what Mrs. Claus needs on a cold winter night.

hanging garnet and aquamarine pendant 

Fabricated silver, garnet and aquamarine beads.  Approximately 1 1/2 inches.

A derivative of an older design (see the post dated June 11).  This is a commissioned piece.  I think it works.

Out in the sunshine showing a bit of the stones’ depth.

One more, a close up.  All the pieces pivot on the rivet going through the bail.

Just finished.  Been at this one for a couple of years.  Thirty-eight beads; about 15 minutes to make each one.  The four large beads are about 9/16″, the small ones are about 3/8″.  The total length is just under 19″.  The beads are hollow, but it still has a little over 2 1/4 oz. of silver.

There are four large beads, six medium sized, and 28 of the smaller ones.

A lobster claw clasp holds it securely.  It’s held together with a vinyl seven strand stainless wire, doubled.

It fits like a loose choker.
