This pendant is an incarnation of my love to flowers and was created with a company of a little Calla Lily plant with cream and yellow flowers sitting on my work table. Hand crafted from scratch it took 11 hours of work and meters and meters of the thinnest fine silver wire. The wire was weaved on a hand shaped sterling silver frame to form light and airy petal embracing softly its heart - the lemon quartz briolette. Little garnets were weaved along the flower edges to add some natural contrast. To give an impression of a flower stem I added two garnet and four peridot beads to the chain. The clasp - hand shaped and then hammered - was embellished with two little garnet beads.
