I haven't made any rings in a while so I thought I would make a few.  I also threw in a few necklaces and a bracelet.  Rings are modelled by a paint brush.  Sorry, some of the pics are blurry  Tongue







The yellow stone is a Swarovski crystal














The red heart/rose necklace is a lacquer pendant from China.  As a kid, my Dad travelled to China for business.  Sometimes the men would come here to visit and this was one of the gifts they brought me.  It was on a simple chain so I replaced it with a thin leatherette cord.  Does anyone have any suggestions/ideas as to what else I can do with this pendant?  Any type of beads to make the necklace itself?  Or does it look OK as is? 




Thanks for looking! 

C & C welcomed.

Cuteness!  I think I like the red, blue & yellow rings the best.  That pendant is really nice with a very cool background story. Wink

I love the red heart pendant as is. It's so beautiful, it deserves to be the center of attention. Adding extra charms or beads might distract from the pendant.

The pendant is so intricately designed, I think it looks great alone on the cord.

Very pretty stuff!  I especially like the watermelon-colored necklace (third from the bottom)

I might just suggest a black velvet rope-type cord for the pendant from China.  The leatherette seems a little thin to me for a piece with such presence  Smiley

Thank you for the compliments & advice everyone.

Great idea with the velvet rope.  I do not want to take away from the piece.
