I love these cabochons. It is a purple Mojave Turquoise that has been combined with Abalone shell and put in a brass matrix. What a wonderful combination of colors! I chose to make what I call a freestyle woven pendant, using 14/20 gold-filled and sterling silver wire. These pendants are named “freestyle” because when I begin to weave, I have no particular style in mind. I cut certain lengths of wire and just begin to weave. I always frame in the back of the pendant first, so I’ve included a picture. The ends become what holds the pendant in place. I sealed this pendant with ProtectaClear.
