I made this simple set to myself (I have easily found a good reason to keep it :))) this will be a gift on the occasion of my forthcoming birthday :P and I needed a ring to match my new nail colour :))) ) But I found the pendant too small, the ring a bit big so I think this is not its final shape... And I have now mini 8mm rivolis in the same colour so I will make earrings too... 14 mm rivolis crystal AB, 11/0 delica 0035, 4mm sw bicones (light olivine, aquamarine, silver) 3mm & 4mm firepolished bead (aqua) 10 mm firepolished bead (inside the BB), 6 mm metal beads (silver).

A little set as a birthday gift to my friend. She has chosen the padparadsha rivoli chrystals and wanted a ring as small as possible. I used 3 and 4 mm firepolished beads with 11/0 delicas to set the rivoli and then I used this frame as a base. The ring and the pendans both have the same base. 4 mm bronze & chocolate brown firepolished beads, 3mm chocolate fpb, 4 mm sw bicones padparadsha & bronze, 11/0 delica, 15/0 seed bead (hehe bronze again... I cant help it :)) ) RAW garnished with picots.
It was love at first sight... me and this bronze chain... at the wholesaler it cried from the shelf "take me home take me home" :)))) I didnt want it to feel lonly so I took the matte pink imitation pearls too :P (8 mm matte imitation pearls, 4 & 6 mm firepolished bronze, 4 mm light rose & bronze sw bicones, 15/0 bronze japanese seed bead, 8 mm copper beads)
