Trinity Twist set

I was asked to submit a special piece for a local Art Show.

Most were painters and photographers.

I felt a bit inadequate.

But, I looked for new chain maille ideas as that is my specialty and I found a new weave and proceeded to make a special pendant.

To make It be more artistic, I made a chain maille Jens Pind Linkage (JPL) chain to hang it on using very small size rings.

Hours later it was finished. Of course, I made matching earrings for a set.

I love it and I heard many nice comments at the Art Show about the jewelry “in the corner”.

Never hesitate to stretch yourself to make something special.

The experience led me to make other pieces though not as fancy but just right for my line of jewelry.

This special “Statement Piece” really made people look!

    A lovely set, Beverly, and made even more interesting by using more than one metal colors. Also the earring and pendant shapes echo the shape of the chain the pendant hangs from. It is so encouraging to hear someone appreciate your artistry. Your designs are beautiful.
