    What an amazing and elegant necklace. You have so much incorporated into this piece. The clasp is soooo pretty. I can see why you’d want to use it.

    Are you going to try to sell this, is it for yourself, or did you make it for someone as a gift. I ask because of all the interesting components you’ve used. Its almost as if you know the person well.
