Heart of a Peacock!!

I have been working on this necklace for three days now and I think I finally made it look the way I wanted it to. I was picturing something a little different when I started, but the results are just as good as what I originally envisioned. I started off with this amazing pendant and went from there.
I wire wrapped pearls on and off for about 5 hours and now my hands hurt like the dickens!! I thought the peacock pearls were a perfect compliment to the gunmetal grey of the heart.

I thought about going all the way around with the wire wrapped pearls but decided that it might be more comfortable if the back was smooth. I tried it on and found it quite comfortable! It is also quite weighty, but in a nice way.

The sun was shining in my kitchen and I figured I better take advantage of it and take my pictures now. I have recently discovered that I like the way my pictures turn out better in the sunlight than  in the shade or under artificial light.

I will never claim to be a good photographer, but I will settle for way better than before :)

Here's to another good day!!
