Stone teardrops

This is a piece I've had in the back of my head for a while.  I wanted to take the basic buckeyball shape and extend 1 end out to make a teardrop shape.  I got that worked out and then came up with a smaller version for the back of the necklace.  The trickiest part was getting 2 "stalk" to come out of 1 ball a
in fairly close proximity so that I could get it to form 2 strands at the bottom.  All in all, I think it worked out nicely.


  1. Very interesting! I think they would look neat individually too, perhaps as beaded pendants?

  2. I think you're right. I'd like to do some pendants with more than one element--like a teardrop and a cube, or a triangle and a sphere, or something. Also, I came up with a variation on this shape that's less teardrop-ish and more ice cream cone-ish. I'll probably put it up here when I get some pics.
