This is a little funky and may not be everyones cup of tea but I like it.
First I made the center piece then decided to add wire. Wire always has a mind of it own so I just go where it takes me. I usually work with shiny wire but I have a few colors in a matte finish and the yellow matched well with the yellow in the cane I used. I wove it over burgundy wire and added black seed beads. I was going to trim the wire at the bottom but scrolled it instead and hammered it a bit. Looks pretty good so I left it.
The top knot was made from the end piece of the cane and a piece of left over black clay that I rolled into a log and textured with the same design that is on the background of the center piece. I then used 26 gauge wire to attach the top knot to the base and added the black agate beads.
So here is my BIG pendant. Right now I have it strung on a gun metal chain but will probably switch to black rubber cord later on.

I love that color of yellow....I have a top that color so this is a keeper.
Thanks for stopping by.
