Guiding Star

2″ x .5″, found objects

Someone who stopped at my table during a craft fair said that she loved my use of mixed metals, and I glanced over my jewelry to see that I had, in fact, mixed many different metals.  In this pendant the mix was practical. I prefer the length of my silver chains, and I didn’t want to have to put the gold pendant on a gold chain.  So the silver star added some silver bling, and the bead posts below it help to pull  attention down to the careful beadwork below.  And thanks to that guiding star, a simple art deco design emerged.
