i have actually been working (for weeks, a few minutes at a time) on this necklace. It looks pretty nice, doesn't it?
it hit a bunch of my own personal challenges i had set for myself-first and foremost, an asymmetrical necklace. also, using leather. and multiple strands. and a BIG toggle clasp used as the focal point. so i should be tickled that it worked out so nicely, right? unfortunately, what that photograph doesn't show is that it's so long that the toggle doesn't have any tension on it so it lays funny and jangles around a bit and also the bar slips down; so it JUST DOESN'T HANG RIGHT. also, the little scribble beads that i made with 28 gauge argentium are itchy and picky, kind of like wearing something made out of human hair.
it's frustrating to have so little time to make jewelry and to have spent so much time on a piece that is just going to have to be disassembled.
