The Reiki Pendant

I have alot of catching up to do and I thought I'd kick off with my latest pendant, now going by the name of The Reiki Pendant! ;o) For those of you who aren't knocking about on FB with me (feel free to join me if you're not!), a brief explanation...I made myself a new pendant, choker stylee, a couple of weeks ago, the base of which is a metal piece, think it might have been a napkin ring in it's former life. I wore it that evening to a complementary therapies workshop I've been attending. The subject that night was reiki. To cut a long story short, we did reiki share where everyone takes a turn to receive reiki from everyone else. During my turn I could feel my throat pulsating and getting really hot and when we'd finished the metal of my choker was almost too hot to touch! My throat chakra was chucking out some serious heat! So, here it is:

The main piece started life as a napkin ring or one of those things you hang on decanters maybe and I straightened it out and wielded my drill on it. The danglie is comprised of a vintage fishing piece wrapped with coloured wire and various beads and part of an earring. At the moment it's on black velvet cord which just ties at the back but I may change that for something else.

Great to see THE Reiki Pendant! It's beautiful and no small wonder it heated up the way it did. You're very talented!
