More of these fun pods that I've been working with. I just love this shape, electroformed or not.

I make these hanging off the end of the mandrel, so they take more balancing than regular beads. After I make and shape the pendant part of the pod, I add sepals (five or six) around the top, and some balls in between.

They are finished with sterling silver loops, which then connect to a large jump ring and go perfectly over a silk cord or ribbon. As soon as I retrieve my serger from my SIL (she's making bridesmaid dresses), I'm going to make a zillion silk ribbons to hand dye or paint.
