I have been wanting to make this lighthouse pendant for a while. I bought the natural wood settings some time ago, in a mix of cherry and walnut woods. They were so lovely I wanted to make some really special pieces from them. I since decided on a longer length chain (32 inches) . I think part of this decision was that I like the feel of a necklace that is almost like a hanging pocket watch.
Last of all, I got the glass cabochons to match, and then I just needed the subject matter. I love lighthouse themed paintings, and had an instinct that it would work well in a small size- after all the actual painting in this is only a 1 inch circle. I’m happy with how this first necklace turned out, and currently sketching out some inspiration for more.
