Sometimes simple is best.
The Aelia pendant is reversible with an encrusted medallion on one side
and a button on the other.
A bit of crystal swag supports a large Swarovski pendant in Crystal Silver Night.
The pendant is it's own jewel although I did want it to hang from a long necklace. Something simple that in no way competed with the main attraction. So I went back to a tried and true spiral rope. I like that it uses two of the pendant colors to compliment the piece, has some depth and texture, but provides a smooth backdrop.
The beaded bail is another study in complexity, and carries forward the metallic feel of this piece with metal beads from Tierra Cast in it's embellished center.
The pendant's medallion center is a large bali spacer also lending a touch of metal.
Since black and grey are my go to colors for apparel I expect to be wearing this one often!
