I decided I wanted a multi-strand portion, so I used the bead mix to create 1 strand on beading wire, then wire-wrapped selected beads with alternating lengths of the chain that was supplied in the kit, then decided the 3rd strand would be simply chain.
I punched holes in in Andrew's lovely leaf coin and used it as a 3-strand connector on one side, then used a bronze cone from my stash for the other end, to add to the assymetrical quirkiness.
Melanie's leaf pendant and a little Czech glass teardrop charm are the perfect embellishment to the clasp side.
I ran out of the chain that was supplied, so I made my own out of more 18g brass wire for the back of the necklace. Taking the photo with the necklace lying flat doesn't really show it off to it's true glory..the strands drape much more nicely when worn! This would have been a great time to own a cool mannequin!
Thanks for stopping by! Go and visit the other challenge participants and see the gorgeousness...
