Elven Pendant

I've been making a few more silver glass gemstone pendants. They've been inspired by J. R. R. Tolkien's The Fellowship of the Ring and The Silmarillion audiobooks I've been listening to when I make beads, and also by my desire to use silvered glass in a way that looks like precious metal jewelry. Here's a photo of a recent pendant:Elven PendantHere's a photo of the back. In addition to the big "gemstone" on the front there are three smaller gemstones going across the top of the bead:Elven Pendant BackStay tuned for more of these pendants, I was just photographing another nice one today!

I love these glass gemstone pendants! What a great way to capture the magic of Lord of the Rings adventures, Karolen. Very mystical, magical pendants you're making!
