Black And White

About this design:

Trying to use up some sticks that I have, as well as my stash. It started off more casual but was having a hard time with the asymmetry of the piece. This is what happened to come out of it. Still not quite sure about the overall look.


Black Onyx sticks, Matte unknown black flat coins, Jet black czech table cut oval coins, Glass teardrops, White shell coins, Jet black crystals, Cream fresh water pearls, gunmetal chain, jump rings and clasp, antique silver chain and spacers, peanut seed beads.

    The design is lovely and very elegant… One thing I learned about asymmetrical necklaces is that you will know it works only when you wear it and move around… Then you really can see how the weight shifts and how the whole design holds up together

    LOVE, LOVE this! The only problem I can see is that the wearers hair might cover up the cool black and white section?

    Agree with everyone else that this is a smashing success, Wanda ! Just the right amount of variety in the beads to make it very interesting.

    Thank you all! I wasn’t quite sure of the overall asymmetry of the design. So hearing your reassuring comments makes me happy!

    I agree Gail that someone with long hair might cover it up. But when the white part was longer or on the bottom where the black is, it didn’t look right. Luckily I have short hair.
