Still playing with the enamels. Got the embedments in without burning myself!
Found the cord open stock. Does anyone think I should jazz up the cord?

Wow, that is pretty AMAZING@@@ Shocked No, I think the cord is perfect; visual interest, but not overwhelming the simple pendant. VERY nice!

I am in awe!  I love it the way it is, but i echo the question of how you put the cord together.  It looked like you used parts of the cord to make wraps to decorate the cord...   could you explain?  It looks like you managed to get them to stay together in rings, but I am not sure how.    I LOVE IT!!

The pendant itself is beautiful, so sparkly and utterly magical! I like the colours in the cord and how the gold bits bring out the gold in the pendant, but is there anything you can do about the bit of string around the top of the pendant - like use a bigger jump ring and put it straight through the light green loopy bit - or is that somehow holding the whole thing together? I just feel that it overwhelms the pendant a little, which is a shame as surely that's the bit you want to show off!
