Terra Cotta jewellery – Part II

I tried taking Terra Cotta jewellery to the next level last week and made patterns in the pendant and earring. It took me 3 evenings to finish this one but I loveeee the final product…I hope I will get better at it going forward. I am super excited with this one as I had a matching saree to wear with šŸ™‚
