More shiny things: new pendant

OK, so I know I'm being lazy by cross posting, and that the reason I set up a jewellery blog was so that I didn't have to bore you all with pictures of my new shiny things. But I've got nothing much to talk about except boring and depressing things, so you can have a post about shiny things instead. Hopefully I'll have some clarity soon on what's happening with my likely move back to the UK and then I will have something to talk about...

Anyway, so, this pendant has been quite a long time in the making. Every now and then, I get out this abalone square and wonder what to do with it. Then, inspiration struck.

Sticking with a sea theme, I've paired it with red and white freshwater pearls and argentium sterling silver. It measures 6cm by 6cm and the circle of pearls is approx 2.5cm.

Interesting piece. I should be ashamed to show my ignorance . . . but I assume the red pearls are dyed somehow?

Yep - don't ask me how, but they are dyed. They'd normally start white; there are lots of colours pearls are dyed, but I like this red. (Which is odd, since I don't wear red jewellery myself - I like making it though, garnets and rubies and the like are fun to work with!)
