I made this pendant quite a while ago, but just couldn't figure out what I wanted to do for the rest of the necklace.  For the pendant, I wire-wrapped ivory freshwater pearls around a thick copper wire ring.  The core is finished with a dark patina and the thinner wire wrapping is still a bright copper providing a nice contrast.  I wanted to keep the rest of the design simple, but something a little different than how I normally finish a wire necklace.  So I made a small section of double stranded black chain, then went to a single strand.  And I love the contrast of elegant ivory pearls with the dark metal.
