Seahorse Pendant Necklace - Heart of Emily by popnicute Seahorse Pendant Necklace - Heart of Emily by popnicute
SEAHORSIE a.k.a Heart of Emily. Heart Pendant #39. Visit my website for more jewelry Popnicute.com :star:

SOLD. Commissioned by Emily from USA.
For a complete list of the heart pendants I made in the past, go to Popnicute Hearts

I went all nuts with this one! This was the second version after the first attempt failed horribly. I'll post photos in my blog later. I'm SO happy with how this turned out! A mixture of wire wrapping, riveting, and soldering :woohoo: My first successful soldering job on a big base metal piece! So excited to add a new skill to my library. Seahorsie is made of copper with brass accents with fossilized coral heart stone.

This seahorse is 4-9/16" tall including the coiled bail. It's huge but look really nice on :la: I love making big pieces!

I love that you made the back as interesting as the front. Did you make the chain and all the little elements, as well, or just the pendant? I like the tube rivets on the back. I feel that draws in more interest.

I really love many of your jewelry pieces, but... I'm not too fond of the presentation. I'm sorry for the critique, but I feel your presentations are distracting from your beautiful jewelry. I have to look at it for a few minutes to figure out if I like it or not. It's a bit busy, I think. I see what you are wanting to do, and it's a noble desire to want to present the piece being worn as well as the entire piece not being worn, but from what I've seen of your jewelry, I feel a more subdued approach would suit your pieces better. Present your jewelry as art, without distractions to take away from the piece, like draped across black fabric and, perhaps, a subdued label in the corner, so that the only thing to really look at is the jewelry piece, itself, or simply a model in a black turtleneck or some other subdued outfit wearing the jewelry. I don't know, I can't really put my finger on it and I'm one to talk, with the way I presented my ring, but I feel your presentations need to focus more on just looking at the piece, itself. You could then link to whatever site you're selling it from and provide multiple photos there, as separate entities, so that a shopper can see how it looks worn as well as what the entire piece looks like. Here is a photo of a gorgeous chain by Art Smith (my favorite jewelry smith). You can see enough of the chain to know whether you like it, or not, you can see how it looks being worn, and you get a good sense of the movement it will have while being worn, all in one photo. No labels or alternate photos to distract from the beautiful necklace. artsmithjewelry.com/images/spi…

I hope you aren't upset with me for saying that, I just feel your jewelry deserves more focus. :)

Thanks for the C&C! I appreciate it! ^_^

The rolo chain is bought but I added my own embellishment to the chain including the handmade clasp. This is an old picture. If you look at my gallery, the newer ones no longer have the multiple views. Just front view and model pic. I decided to go simpler as well ;)

Okay, I must have stumbled in on some older stuff! :lol:  Nice work on the clasp, as well. Have you made any chains?

Yes, I have. I made the chain on my Bollywood necklace. There were no store bought components aside from stones & beads.

I couldn't find that necklace. I wanted to see your chain. I'm not sure how I missed it, I looked through your whole gallery. Nice gallery, btw. :)
