The Desert Princess - A Work in Progress Oct. 26

I have pretty much completed the necklace except for some embellishments I would like to add to the connectors. I wanted to make sure it would hang ok before I did any extensive wire wrapping. With the last strands connecting to the clasp, I made the outside strand a bit shorter than the inside strand. Usually it's the other way around but I needed that outside strand to pull the bottom 4 strands up a bit.

I invision this on someone much taller than me. When wearing a T-shirt, it hangs too low on me, but if I put on a blouse with a wide collar and wear the necklace on the outside, or if I wear a turtle neck sweater, it actually looks good! Here is a not very good pic, but just to show you

OK ! Now to go and add a few details!

Wow - that is a statement necklace for sure. It looks nice with the collar shirt too.

Nan, This necklace just gets better and better....and you're tempting me with the "someone taller" thing as I am 5'11"! It's a lovely work of wearable art! ~Becky

Wow, just wow!!! This is one honey of a necklace, what a *fantastic* piece of work.

I love how the design has evolved over time; I'm like that myself, it's where the true joy is in creativity.
