{Prototype} PIPA Pendant

I hope you won’t find it too strange of me making prototype piece of my own PIPA design for my client. She choose her stones and she has preference about how those beads should be arranged, I want her to confirm her wish before I execute the project. :)
And so I’ve placed beads as per her request, this is how it looked like:

Hehe, so it’s a wee bit too overwhelming, and I am glad that I’ve made this prototype before I broke my silver – cause she felt the same too. I then proposed, that perhaps we could try:
IMG_1277 IMG_1278 IMG_1281
The different about this two layout is – the latter have more defined tear-drop shape. :) So to those who know how to construct PIPA pieces, a little note to you: Attaching beads at the out-most layer might make the tear-drop shape a little rounder than it should be, and there’s nothing wrong about it, it is solely depend on one’s preference, and this should be an option you could offer to your buyer. :)

To learn to make classic PIPA, here’s the tutorial: DCH002 PIPA Earrings. The instruction is also available in my Etsy store and ArtFire store. :)
Hope you are inspired!
