Really long necklace for Erika


About this design:

This is very long. It reaches just below the belly-button. I did alter the design just a little since this photo was taken. There is now a double bold but lightweight brass chain going behind the neck to create the required length of the necklace. The largest wooden cirkles are 5cm/2inches in diameter. Other materials I have used are bone (whitish), resin (red), brass, antique silver and leather string. I will soonish take some new photos of it, on Erika, and post them here.

    Lovely – reminds me of the 60′s. I see Goldie Hawn wearing it. Or maybe on the Mod Squad. Brings back memories. Can’t wait to see it modeled.

    Wow, that is so great to hear. About Goldie Hawn I mean. Erika, the young lady I made it for, actually looks a bit like her, although she has dyed her hair brown now. Yes I found a photo of he, so you can see for yourself.

    But I think I have to check out what Mod Squad is.

    What a fabulous collection of circles. Love the mix of colors and materials, especially the ones made with wood.

    Really cool man (as they said in the 60′s). I can dig it. ROTFLOL (roll on the floor laugh out loud). Oh I remember that slang well. Oh what a memory. No I definitely was not a hippy nor was I very hip.

    Unusal. Very creative. I like it.
