This is a monster of a pendant, measuring 4" long and 1 1/4" wide, hence the name (albeit upside down).
I let these beautiful Lapis Lazuli beads dictate the design to me. They seemed to want to be in a line, one ontop of another, graduating downwards in size. The challenge was setting them in position, so I have used multiple structure wires to do this as well as weaving. - I used an obscene amount of wire for this beast ;D
Of course a pendant of this size and weight needs a substantial chain to hang from, so it gave me an excuse to do some chain maille, something I very rarely have time to do, this Byzantine chain is 17 1/4" long, including the coiled hook clasp.
I have left the copper in it's shiny state, if you would prefer it oxidised/antiqued, just let me know and I will do this at no extra cost.
