So much of my design work is unplanned. People often ask if I draw my designs on paper before starting the piece, and sometimes I do -- but most often I have an abstract idea and go with it. As I'm working on it, the shapes suggest the path and the path finds its way. Not very scientific ;-) but my kind of fun.
For this pendant, I intended to pair up the circle with another geometric shape I had already made. However, the scrap that was left after cutting the circle was by far the coolest of the three pieces. So I used it to frame the circle and left the original shape out completely.
I hope you'll stop by next Wednesday to see another fold forming project. Have a great week!

This is gorgeous! Your work never ceases to amaze me. The fact that you are able to make up so much of your designs as you go really impresses me. I know I'd be sitting and planning for hours to make something half as nice if I was in your place!
