.......and the larger one is destined to become a ring later on to complete the set. I'll post pics of that one once it's finished.
And the next one I made up is a coral coloured petroglyph. It has a bit of a terracotta look about it so I added turquoise coloured beads and some carnelian chips to give it an Aztec feel. I finished it with a length of diamond-cut flat gold chain to join the beads together which has really dressed it up. Complimentary colours on the colour wheel have such impact when used together which is why the turquoise and terracotta work so well together. The gold adds some real richness to it but an earthy twine would have made this piece just as interesting.
After making these few casts into jewellery, I still have a whole container of pieces to play with and lots of ideas so I'll post more photos as I make them up.
