    Default An odd piece of wire and a amber cab

    Found a piece of silver wire….2mm floating about in my bits box! I did have this amber cab and then I will admit saw an illustration. So as I am departing for the moment from the symmetric, off I went!
    Very simple but I think fun…what do you think?

    There is asymmetry but I think balance is then important. You’ve created almost a triangle and so personally I would probably have put the setting on the diagonal or the downward wire so that it doesn’t tilt the corner.,as you centred the bail it’s quite good to hang the framework to see where it’s balance is and then move the setting about. I might have put it directly opposite the bail

    I took a screenshot and rotated the picture. It was interesting to see where placing the bail somewhere else completely changed the pendant

    That's a really good design idea Caroline; thanks for the tip!

    I should do it myself Jules! Things look very different in photos that’s why I take at least 3 views for my page. It’s a bit late when you’ve actually set the stones to do anything about it though unless you can work out a cold connection
