I love the shape of these, I made circles first, then gently shaped them into ovals. Some of the swirls in between are soldered, others wrapped. I much prefer the stability and strength I get from soldering now!
I coiled around the frame, adding tiny faceted Hill Tribe beads and faceted pink topaz in a lovely sugary pink. The pink chalcedony I have used before, they change colour from pale rose to lavender depending on the light. I will definitely be re-ordering these!
