November Echo Creative Club Reveal

I was delighted to see the handmade pendant by Jeannie K Dukic for the November Echo Creative Club. It was this adorable heart with wire in gold and black. I made a necklace that I really loved and photographed nicely, but when I put it on, the thickness of the pendant is so much larger than the rest of the necklace that it causes it to lie funny. I only discovered this a few days ago, so in all honesty, I'm probably going to fashion it into a longer necklace design and replace it with another pendant on this one, but I'll update my blog with the results after I edit. In the meantime, here is the original pendant:

 And Here is the necklace design:

I first patina'd the small arte metal leaves to a gold color on both sides and glazed. I used black obsidian beads with pretty patina'd gold bead caps and Swarovski crystals. I patina'd a keyhole and added it to a arte metal connector blank. I used an arte metal filigree as well as 2 types of chain and jump rings. 

Thanks for checking out my design! Please visit the other participants as well.
