Theme Challenge: "Too Precise" pendant

I'm still plodding slowly through my 150 Themes Challenge list. The next prompt was "too precise" and I used one of the tumbled stones I bought at the aquarium we went to for my birthday. This stone is amazing and as soon as I saw it, I wanted to make something with it!

Ok, some information about this stone. It is a special kind of fiber optic-like mineral that magnifies images! This means that the challenge for me was to make the wire-wrapping exactly the same on both sides (harder than it sounds!) so that you can't see it so obviously through the stone. Speaking of seeing things through the stone, that's why I chose this project to answer the "too precise" theme---no matter what you wear this pendant with, it will go with your outfit! And almost too precisely, too, because it actually slightly magnifies what you see through it! Here's some example pictures:

So it's almost like you're wearing a little magnifying glass! You can even put it on a long chain and use it to help you read the newspaper! Too cool. :D

Anyway, on to theme #5: "the most cutting criticism".

Tomorrow is also my playdate with Patty from My Life Under the Bus blog! Too exciting. :D
