Bright Retro Triangles – beaded geometric jewelry set comprising of a necklace and pair of earrings.
This Bright Retro Triangles set came about when I was learning the Butterfly Clasp (by Heather Collin). This is but one of the many variations and results that came from learning the Butterfly Clasp. Learning is a journey and so much fun. Don’t you think?
The bail works like a hinge so that the triangular 3D pendant can swing – i.e. not stiff and rigid at the point where it connects to the bail.
The bail itself is worked around a Pandora-type or snake chain. 44cm long. Rhodium plated over copper and lead + nickle free. Though the bail can move along the chain, it can only do so for short lengths because the “bumps” along the chain help keep the pendant centered.
The earrings are 3D triangles or pyramids.
See Butterfly Clasp article for more details on the construct of the clasp.
