And, a big thank you to my partner, Cat Pruitt, who gave me such wonderful things to work with! Here's what Cat sent ...
I love the palette of the different elements sent by Cat. I mean, she sent EVERYTHING~ I knew I wanted to set her focal off so I used the wonderful little beads that look like Amber. I wish I could say for certain what they are. I hand-knotted them so you'll find a little knot in between each bead. I love to hand knot pearls and other beads. It's so relaxing. I know, some of you find it as interesting as watching grass grow. But that's what makes the world go 'round.
I've really got this Boho-Gypsy vibe going on with all of the chain that Cat sent. I think I'm going to add a little more to fill in the space above the focal a little better. I'll repost the photo with the additional chain and get your opinion.
Because I used all the chain in the front of the necklace, I was forced (LOL!) to use fabric for the back! Look at the handmade toggle! I love it!
Here's Cat's spectacular etched copper pendant. This is quite large ... maybe 1.5". She did a really nice job capturing all of the detail. I'm afraid mine never look as good as this. :-)
I'm so thrilled with this piece that I'll be wearing it soon. It "looks like me!"
