The Crown Jewels

You never know where experimentation will take you. Recently my students requested I teach them how to make rings and earrings. I hadn't made many rings at the time so I began experimenting.
I have come up with some lovely designs - sold quite a few also - and now my most recent ring design has lead me to make this pendant.
All Swarovski crystals locking into a beautiful sparkling pendant. When I finished making it my thoughts were "you are getting closer to making the Crown Jewels."  Thus the name.
I have woven a spiral weave rope to hang the pendant from in black and grey with the occassional flash of garnet red to pick up the centrebead of the pendant.
I am very happy with this design and look forward to hearing any comments.
