Well my play time in my studio was productive, and this little necklace is the result of that time. I have been wanting to use this wire or box cage for some time. I have played and fussed with many different projects while trying to incorporate that idea but was never really pleased with the out come. I still have a lot of beach glass left over from my previous outing so I thought it would be perfect to use the glass. This pendant makes me think of a little secret treasure locked away.



I had to think through the whole fabrication of the pendant because I could not solder with the beach glass inside the box area. First I hard soldered the bezel strip, then I medium soldered it to the open backing. I fused the wire together to create the cage front and then easy soldered it to the top of the bezel. To hold the beach glass in place I cold connected a second backing with wire rivets.






I love the way it came out, it will be hard to let go of this one. I will have to go back to the beach and find some more beach glass so I can make more secret treasures.
