    This is GROOVY!!! ;)
    I was thinking Mark or Mike. I just Googled it and the third member of Mod Squad was Pete.

    I say to list it. There are lots of people who are into the vintage feel. This is perfect for a summer sundress.

    Or what about a navy turtleneck. That would be so appropriate for Mod Squad.

    I repeat after Julie, GROOVY, I’m trying to figure out how you connected the rings, you definitely should list that :D

    Thanks, Ladies! Asia, i made a wrapped loop with the amy cubes, and used a jumpring to connect the hoop. Then strung them all on beading wire, which I attched to the chain with jump rings.
    I’m thinking I may take out the bit of chain above the hoops to make a more smooth transition. Need to sleep on it…

    Susie, I also think this is groovy and very cool! Just a thought though, how do it hang on a real person? Thinking of the chain. That said, I do love this look and think it so in time, so you should def. list it, my friend :D

    Thanks, Ladies!

    Frida, the whole necklace is very lightwieght. It hangs nicely on a an average size person, but not so well on someone who is a bit “heavier”.

    A friend gave me a big bag of her castoffs. Some is junk, but some can be McGyvered. In with the junk is a nice long piece of vintage brass chain. I just might redo this necklace with the vintage chain rather than the nylon.

    I think it’s soo cool!! Lucite and all :D Isn’t interesting how different a necklace can be on different peresons. It can be a pain though when it wont hang as one want it to.
