Absolutely gorgeous. I know nothing about making jewelery, but I can imagine that this took many hours of dedicated work. Your wife must have been thrilled when she unwrapped it. The lighting of the photo is very nice, and the geode background works perfectly.

thanks mtnman........suprisingly it really did not take too many hours but it does take a dedicated effort and a measure of skill....I generally do not consider myself all that skilled at much so when after a while of grinding and bending wire I am able to produce a decent looking piece I feel a nice sense of acomplishment.....

I ditto what Mtnman said about the lighting and background. The design of the pendant is fabulous and the workmanship looks superb.
