This week I decided to use a real silk cocoon and pearls (big surprise). I had thought about trying to add in some metal clay, but fabrication seemed like the right technique for the design.
I soldered up a bezel setting using some pretty gallery wire, sewed the pearls onto the cocoon and voila!
The top of the pendant says Vision & Insight. I already had the disk cut and stamped from some long forgotten and abandoned class project (taken not taught) and it fit the bezel perfectly so why not use it? Now I have to think of a good story to go with the text. There are a few more pictures on Flickr for the curious among you.

Check back to see what Laura and Mike dreamt up. Next week's challenge is "Iconic Statement". Make something with a specific fashion icon in mind. This one is hard. I have no immediate ideas. Hmmmm.....
