This necklace design is different from your usual chain and pendant.
In fact, to be honest, when I finished with it, I wasn’t quite sure that I even liked it!
But then I tried it on, and that made all the difference. Suddenly, in spite of the smallish pendant, it felt like a piece with lot of presence.
It sort of makes me think of the bib style necklaces that are popular these days.
It’s also interesting that the shapes change as you change the length at which you wear it. Lots of interesting options to pursue!
If you make your own version of this necklace, please feel free to share your results.
