I think it is long enough after the holiday to post these. :) One of my clients commissioned this turtle pendant for his wife as a Christmas gift, so I didn't want to post it too early in case it showed up in a web search before she actually received it. It is designed by me and officially called Lyndsey's Turtle.
He is made with an 18mm rivoli, a 10mm?(not sure, I forgot to measure it) round bead of polished fossil jasper, tilas, 3mm firepolished beads, 7mm vertical drilled drop beads, a baby spike bead (for the tail), four 6mm crystal pearls (support on the back) and assorted seed beads.
I think the back shot shows off the construction fairly well:
I hope everyone had a happy and safe holiday season! (^-^)
