This piece features a rainbow moonstone in a copper setting, in a style heavily inspired by Thanit Tahua

With Savage Femininity, I was willing to emulate the style of Thanit Tahua because of two reasons: 

1. I had bought tutorials from her previously.

2. The customer did not ask me to copy a specific piece, and her only reason from not buying directly from Thanit Tahua was due to the unpredictability of the mail during this Covid 19 pandemic.

The accent chain for this pendant is handmade with moonstone and Herkimer diamond accent beads. I have used simple segments of 4 in 2 chainmail. I feel the chain really finishes this piece off well and makes it shine.

Key to Her Heart

This rainbow moonstone is set in antiqued sterling silver, in a heart shaped key. It features accent beads of cherry quartz, amethyst, and rainbow moonstone.

With Key to Her Heart, I had to create this design from scratch. I made sample pieces first in copper, and only used sterling once I had settled on my final design. Even still, I wound up changing small details in the final design. I think I made at least 5 mock ups before creating this final piece.

These pictures are NOT to scale. This bust is the size of a toddler, so the pendant looks comically large here. In reality, it is less than 4 inches in length.
