More Horse Stuff

Someone suggested that the "Neptune's Steed" pendant I posted last would be more effectively photographed against a black background. She was so right! So here he is again - a much better pic this time.

Neptune's Steed Pendant

This is a pendant I made for the Year Of Jewelry Project - it's my vision of the Walter Crane painting of Neptune driving all his horses through the surf.

It was quite a feat of engineering to produce this piece and took quite a while to develop. I learned a lot about combining wire work and bead work in the same piece while working on it and the workmanship isn't my best, but I expect my next piece using this method will be much neater, now that I know what not to do. ;-D
