my pendant

I made this pendant with the help of Julieta Odio (see my previous post). It is the only piece I completed in my jewelry making classes with her. Soon after that we moved from Costa Rica to Kenya.
It looks like a pear, but my inspiration was a drawing my daughter Daniela made in her art class when we lived in Cochabamba, Bolivia a few years ago. She was only four years old then.

When Julieta gave me a piece of metal sheet and a tiny saw I honestly did not think I could turn it into something like this... lots of sanding and polishing!
