Necklace Makeover and New Etched Bracelet

I made this necklace some time ago but was never happy with the center pendant so I decided to change it.  Now that I can etch (a little) I thought a center pendant of etched copper would be just what it needed.   I was right, I love it now.

The Lapiz beads just seem to pop more now, or maybe it’s just my imagination.   Originally there was a Lapiz drop at the center.

I also made this 3 part bracelet with etched panels linked together and  added a wire clasp.

IMG_7532 I like the way the cuff turned out.  It’s big and the etching is not very deep but I think it works 🙂

    You are right. I can’t believe how much the change in pendant changed the look of that whole necklace. And the bracelet is absolutely beautiful. Is it from one of your daughter’s drawings?

    Thank you, Diane ! No, the bracelet is one of my own drawings 🙂
