Delphica wire wrapped pendant with negative space

This howlite bead was sitting on my studio desk and had been for quite a while. I loved the colour and the soft, smooth feel of this bead and thought it would look nice in sterling. When wrapping, the asymmetrical shape was going to prove a little daunting until I decided to include the negative space and embellish it with a coil of wires, wrapped and bare. It is around 32mm high and an absolute pleasure to wear. The jury is out regarding negative space but I am not going to fill that space, but rather, leave it open.
