Item details

The basic Pendant was designed by Mavis Llewellyn in the early 60's. After perfecting her lapidary skills Mavis found herself with a lot of cabochons and no decent findings to set them in. The Basic Pendant design was born out of necessity as a result of Mavis's efforts to come up with a design with wire to hold a cabochon securely. While the original was a little plainer looking than this, the basic structure of three or more wires encasing the stone and being held together with binding wire was pure genius on Mavis's part. There are many variations of this design today and many different artists contributing to it's changes giving us a wonderful variety of pendant designs to choose from. This project appeared in the May 2001 issue of The Wire Artist Jeweller. Classification – Intermediate
