My BIG Mixed Media Pendant

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.
