    This pendant is very similar to a pendant I recently posted on CW. The size and trellis work are the same, instead of enamel work in the middle there is a blister pearl. Inbetween the inner and the outer circles there is twisted wire work and 5 paste stones. I think the pendant is silver, unfortunately the acid I use isn't giving a reading, I read up that these acids do have a limited shelve life so I need to buy some more.
    My question is could the same person have made the 2 pendants, I shall put the link of the other pendant below in the comments

    Many thanks for looking

      Yes, it looks like your other pendant. Both are gorgeous!

      Both are beautiful. I know I'm the least educated one on here right now...and I'm sure the mesh work has a more official name, it reminded me of honeycomb though. I could see them being made by the same person. The only difference in the manufacturing process that stood out to me is that the middle 'stone' in your other brooch looks like it was 'enmeshed' in the mesh (no actual pun intended!) but kind of what you'd see with a screw and washer. It appeared to be built into and affixed on both sides of the mesh whereas the middle stone here rests on top of it. Since I barely know anything as compared to the rest, I don't know if this simply indicates different technique by same maker, different maturity/time periods of the manufacturing process by same maker, etc.

      I truly think they are similar enough in nature to have been made by the same company, perhaps different designers or time periods. I was excited to see something new (to me)! Both are lovely pieces!!

      Hi KarenLR, thanks for your comment. I see were you are coming from the trellis work is similar. Also as you say the middle is different to the other pendant. Personally I think the other pendant as more professional finish. It's very refreshing that you are taking a interest and you have a very fine eye for detail.

      Hi KarenLR, this is exactly the same design as my other pendant, notice the back is the same as this pendant, so it could be the same maker/designer food for thought.

      While scrolling through eBay for Charles Horner I came across this pendant. The pendant is exactly the same but doesn't have the chain, I'm not sure if it's Horner because I thought he usually marked his pieces.
