I am definitely ready for spring (and summer) as you can see with these spontaneous woodland scenes-
I finally got a chance to try out the jewelry wire I bought months ago-
The pendant itself is a large (and strangely sparkly) calcite crystal I found on hike in the mountains behind my Mom’s house. I went with a very minimalist approach to the wiring allowing it to appear in only a few key spots on the front- just enough to hold the stone in place. I went with the silver wire which I think meshed best with the milky white mottled with gray and orange of the calcite crystal.
