About this design:

This all started with the copper/sterling focal piece in the front and Arja's beautiful bronze PMC heart she made, and the rest grew from that! Leather rounded cord braided in 3 colors, lampwork glass disks and beads, green freshwater pearls, and silk cords and brown suede tied at the back of the neck.

    OOOO! Shannon! If you know me, I’m all about earthy and woodsy. This fits the bill nicely! Love it! Love Arja’s heart too!

    @J Pilkington, PMC is Precious Metal clay. A clay/metal mix that can be formed into whatever shape you desire to make. It is then heated in an oven to burn off the clay and all is left is the metal. Comes in Sterling, copper, bronze etc…
    The best definition however, is best left to some one that has actually USED it though. ;-)
    Not me. Teehee! Someday I’d like to!
