Someone in my community was offering a free class on jewelry design using lost wax and i had to take the opportunity. My first attempt was in last year but the casting place lost my piece so I had to design anew. I am glad that mishap happened because my second attempt was way better.

Yesterday I went to the atelier again to finish of the pendant, sanding, polishing etc. I get to use all the cool machines and I love it.. When I return home I put together a necklace using the pendant as the focal piece. The pendant is designed as a positive reminder of my dreams and failures in life so I plan to use it daily. I completed it with a feather and water pearl. It looks a bit too chic than casual but I love it.

very awesome!  I really like the feather behind too, great pairing

So I assume this isn't really a make at home kind of thing (one can always hope Cheesy)....hopefully you get to make more pieces.

That's a very pretty pendant, nice design. Sort of reminds me of a slice of cheese  Wink
I saw it in the 50 projects and meant to respond, but that thread moves so fast, I lost track.
