Add Some Summer Sizzle: Fused Glass Wire Wrapped Pendant with Gemstones

I've been looking for ways to "step up" my fused glass jewelry, especially because I would like to enter better shows, which typically require that I jury in my jewelry.  So, I've taken a few wire-wrap classes to help me.  I also have a few extra gemstones that I thought would add that extra sparkle -- even through there's enough with the dichroic glass alone.  Here's the first of my wire wrapped pendants.  It includes pearls, pink topaz and pink amethyst.

This was harder to make than I though as the technique works better with beads.  I am planning to make a few more in blues and purples.  I'd be interested in your thoughts.  

Also, I hope to be sharing more jewelry photos in the near future.  I've been challenged with accurately representing all the colors in the dichroic glass but have invested in a DSLR camera and a macro lens, so hopefully, I'll have some good photos to share as I'm working on some new designs.
