Seaward Pendant

I've been dabbling in PMC for a  year and quite seriously for the past six months.
Everything I've learned has been through trial and error and reading a lot of books!
Here is a pendant I'm pretty happy with.
It's PMC3, the chain I made with fine silver wire (18 gauge jump rings and hammered wire). The stamps I used for the text and the seashell are from a collection I got at Alpha Stamps  called
Under the Sea Cling Stamp Set.
The pendant is about 2.5 inches long including the seashell and the chain is 28 inches.

I plan on many more pieces! PMC is a lot of fun to work with and you don't have to be an expert to make something thoroughly satisfying.

Were you able to torch fire this or did it have to go in a kiln? I think I'm about to succumb to PMC

Hi Kyra,
I kiln fired this piece. There was a lot of silver in the pendent, so I thought it best to use the kiln. And I prefer kiln firing, mainly because I get impatient with the torching of bigger pieces...I'd rather get a bunch together and fire everything at once.
