For the past month or two, I've been working on making lovely shimmery pendants using glass cabochons. While I have been very excited about them, I have been a bit hesitant to post them on my store. Why? Simply because (as per usual) I didn't know what story to associate with them.
The story that I finally decided on was, in fact, my mother's idea. While we were on vacation two weeks ago, I showed her what I was creating. She called them Silmarils (as in, the Simarillion by Tolkien--which I have read).
And, so, it stuck.
So, today I posted three lovely new items, two necklaces and one ring:
I am very content--especially with how the pictures turned out. The pendants themselves shimmer and shift in the light... for instance, the last one--the dark blue one--sometimes seems more purple than blue. It's gorgeous.
I am very happy to share.
