    Very nice multi-strand. It lays so evenly. Would you like to adopt me as your mother-in-law?

    Thank you ladies! I’m sure she’ll like it. She’s a very special lady! She’s so funny, she told me that she has more jewelry now than she’s had in her whole life and wears some even when she’s just hanging out at home. I’m very blessed to have her in my life!

    Love it–richly textured, lovely earthy tones, and I agree that you did a nice job with smoothing all those strands! Did you use a multi-strand clasp or do you have some other technique? Brava!

    Thank you, there is some chain in the back with a copper clasp. The single chain makes it more comfortable on the neck.

    We are very good secret keepers, Brenda. ;) You just have to pay us off with jewelry or beads…..LOL

    What a stunning necklace! I love the multi-layered design (always wrestle with those myself) — congrats on such a great job with this piece! The copper pendant is lovely! :D

    I know my secret is safe with my Chicky friends. No Harriet, she only plays games on her computer, we don’t send any e-mails because she forgets how to get them. But at 84, she’s great! She has 4 granddaughters and they call her their “GROOVY GRANNY!”

    What a stunning piece, Brenda! I struggle with getting my lengths right on multiple strands – this is fabulous! Love the copper pendant! Your MIL is one lucky lady to have you for a DIL! She sounds like one groovy lady!
