Industrial Chic

I knew I was in trouble when I went to Michael's and saw this pendant holder. All of the 'talismans' and findings are from the work of Susan Lenart Kazmer from her line titled "Industrial Chic." Her artwork has been in exhibits at the Smithsonian Museums in Washington DC and at the Art Institute in New York. She calls the pendants 'Talismans."

I chose talismans which fit my personality and wired each one to the pendant holder. I also added crystals to the end of some of the talismans just to give the piece added color and to 'soften' the piece. I have many more talismans left and plan to make a whole lot of other jewelry pieces with them.
