Topaz Amulet Pendant

I used a broken Topaz ring for the focal piece on this pendant, and wrapped the outer area with tiny Topaz beads. This is one of my favorites.

It's really hard to take good jewelry photos...

I wanted to show off my newest piece. I used some new effects. I wrapped soem vintage typewriter keys that spell "dream", and then wrapped some bitty sparkly topaz beads around this neat little gear charm (Tim Holz), and the rest is glass beads and polished steel wire. Those curlies that hold on the gear were hard...another Deryn Mentock inspiration from an old issue of Belle Armoir Jewelry.
