AJE Component of the Month – July

Another month has flown by and it’s time for the big reveal of our Component of the month challenge.

This month we were all treated to a gorgeous fossilised pebble pendant from Lesley Watt of TheaElements.

Aren’t they gorgeous? I love Lesley’s stoneware designs, they’re always wonderfully tactile, beautifully finished, and she has all the best glazes!

This is the one I received to work with…

I raided my stash and found a couple of bronze ammonite components (also made by Lesley) that I’d been hiding, which made my decision for how I wanted the design to look. I think these were earring charms, and having large holes for stringing, I decided to join them with leather thong and wrap them with bronze wire. I’m a little bit obsessed with bronze at the minute, it has such a lovely warm colour and looks great with everything!

I chose some matching beads in Czech glass, Amazonite, and some of my own lamp work, and made long connectors for the lower part of the chain.

And finished the top section with Aged seed beads and a Vintaj clasp.

It ended up as quite a simple design, but I think it leaves the focus nicely on the pendant! I’d like to say a big thank you to Lesley for such a gorgeous component to play with 🙂

  1. Beautiful design – love the earthiness and the soft colour palette and the great use of the bronze ammonites. Thank you for taking part in the challenge.

  2. Such a beautiful design as always Caroline! I love the bronze wire and all the beautiful texture you have going on and what a wonderful mix of beads. It’s both earthy and dreamy all in one piece! Stunning!
