@momiemae was my partner in the Use What You Have Swap, and I when I saw that she loves Labyrinth, I immediately thought of this project.
I don’t wear a lot of jewelry because I have a nickel allergy and my DS1 has a metal phobia (yeah, it’s a thing, poor kid) and hates it when I wear jewelry. But, I love it and often browse jewelry on Pinterest and Etsy. I saw a similar pendant a while back and it reminded me of the crystal balls in the movie Labyrinth (yup, total child of the 80s, and this movie was pure magic). I remembered I had a clear marble salvaged from a wacky earring still in my stash from, oh, I don’t know, 25 years ago? I guess I was saving it for something special.
It took a lot of tweaking, a lot of swearing, and a couple of hours…but, I managed to make a chain cage for this marble. I cut the chain and added a clasp, added a star to the pendant. Voila! I totally love how it turned out.
