Pea Pod Pendant

I once saw a picture of this and kept the idea
of it in my head. I wish I could find the original
again to see how it was made compared to mine.
I used a 20 gauge sterling silver wire for the
pea pod shape and once I had manipulated it to
an interesting shape, I hammered it. Then I strung
some light green fresh water pearls on a thinner
sterling silver wire and wrapped it at the top and
bottom of the pod. If I were to make this again,
I'd use a thicker wire for the pod, or better yet,
I'd try square wire instead of round. Oh well,
right now I'm just playing around with it and
learning a lot through trial and error.
