Marie in Paris
This pewter charm has a swanky, old-world feeling to it. Like faux royal crown jewels or something from a fancy dress ball, hanging from an ornate chain and sparkling in the chandelier light.
The fused glass, with the bits of fire color showing in the depths, comes from the dichroic glass. It gleams and glitters like a fiery opal with ruddy and purple colors, it's almost impossible to make them show in photographs.
The setting in pewter is so ornate and decorated, with two loops at the top and one at the bottom for a dangle.
I love the texture and patina on the metal. So pleased with the way this turned out. Like something from the Court of King Louis in Paris, so long ago and far away.
