    This is amazing … gorgeous. I love the way you put the components together, and the use of the plastic (the brown looking thingies?)with the cord is wonderful.

    This is a beautiful necklace. Living in FLorida, USA I would definitely have plenty of places to wear this statement piece. Just went to the play “Menopause The Musical”, I would have loved to wear it there.

    Beautiful! It’s fun when a little “doodling” around with beads and components becomes something as lovely and unexpected as this. I have to ask what the “horns” are … bone? … horn? … lucite/acrylic? …. ?????
