The theme for this week had me stumped, so I decided on a compromise - this is a piece I have been working on for an upcoming competition. It's not an anonymous entry thingy, so I thought it would be OK to use this here.
The medallion shaped bits are on a soldered framework and then wrapped with a kazillion feet of 28g. sterling wire. I have used AB swaros, 4mm rose quartz beads, freshwater pearls and baby matsuno seedies. Each of these sections are connected with wire-wrapped 6mm rose quartz beads, leading into a 2 into 1 chain thingy which has larger matsunos on the bigger rings. I wanted the double chain to go to a single one at the back, so using these gorgeous 2 hole rose quartz beads I wired them so I could do that. I also made a toggle clasp to match with my design. This piece has a really nice glow in real life and no matter how many photos I took I really couldn't do it justice.

These are other pictures that I also took, including the clasp, the connectors and an alternate overall view.
