About this design:

ok.. I went ahead and made the clasp....you knew I would.... not quite as intricate as the one suggested by Shannon..but still quite a nice finish I think.

    WOW, you did it! And it’s sooo much better than a pre-made one for this necklace. Looks like you followed the general idea of the one that I suggested to you but made it your own which is so special. Love it, and it goes with the style so well. Now, are you going to sell it or keep it for yourself? :-) SLS
