New Colored Pencil – Silver Pendant

I’m having a lot of fun making these colored pencil on copper pieces. It’s nice working with sterling silver too. This piece I raised the copper piece off the silver base with crimp beads.

Front view

Side view. It’s still hard to see the piece is raised. It looks crooked in the picture but it really isn’t.

Back view. Probably should do more finishing on it. I like to do a brush finish as it is easier to take care of since sterling silver tarnishes so easily. The challenge in this piece was making sure the tube bail wasn’t going to be in the way of the rivets. I like using tubing for bails. It’s so much easier than having to make the bail from scratch. I have a few more colored pieces already done, just have to do the silver part.
