Amethyst Maille Pendant

This pendant is made from sterling silver sheet and wire, with a faceted amethyst. The leaf is stamped, chased and hand-formed, and the setting is a variation of my wrap setting. There is just the tiniest bit of maille in the pendant; I think it is a good companion for my amethyst maille bracelet. I'm very excited about the leaf; it's a new technique for me and one I'm interested in pursuing. I just love using fire and hammers!
