I ordered some pendant trays from paperstudio.com.   Here is some of what I came up with: 









The wire is kind of rusting, I'm not sure what to do about that.  Also I must give credit to ParisGirl who's projects steered me to trying watercolor with the last two pendants.

The wire is just reacting to whatever you used to cover it. I've collaged with silver and copper leaf for ages, and have learned to just love whatever comes out of the reaction and work it into the overall piece. Depending on the type of wire you used it will end up being kinda blue-ish green. copper is more green, silver is more blue.

Did you use diamond glaze to cover the bits?

I love how your necklace turned out. I would totally wear that Smiley 

edited to add: I always use acrylic gel medium to cover and get reactions with the metal.

This is a gorgeous pendant! I'm generally not a fan of them, but I just love this. The color is beautiful, and it has just enough to look interesting without being too busy. Amazing work!

I love it, it looks great. Id definately be happy wearing it, and if the wire is rusting that would just add to its charm Smiley
