I handmade this lotus pendant from sterling silver wire. First, I formed the lotus shape, then I hammered the wire to work-harden it and to create a textured surface. I then wrapped smaller-gauge wire around the lotus for greater detail, and wire-wrapped a small, flashy green labradorite drop, which I attached to the bottom of the pendant. I added an African turquoise bead to connect to the shiny sterling chain, and placed two faceted aquamarine beads along the chain to match the aqua details. Finally, I oxidized (antiqued) the pendant and polished it by hand to enhance to details. The chain length is 21". The lotus pendant, including drop, is approx. 2 1/2".
