Statement necklace with brooche

About this design:

The idea with the necklace was to make a statement necklace that was very wearble for party - and for everyday use.

It makes a statement, but yet it is no bigger than it can be worn with a blazer or over a T-shirt to fix up an everyday garment.

I have taken a long time putting it together to make it easy to put on. All the chains are composed in a way that makes it stay in place and is not a big mess at the toogle clasp. You do not have to "organise" this necklace before you put it on - it is designed to organise itself.

    You HAVE been busy! It is MASSIVELY impressive, and I appreciate it even more since I started a similar (but much simpler and more modest = quicker :-) ) project yesterday, and immediately got tangled!
    Beautiful, did I say that :-)

    Thank you all for your comments.

    Monica -> Yes, it is easy to loose ones temper when the chains just won’t do what you want them to do! I know all about that.

    Sometimes my fingers get very “frustrated” workning with small beads, jump rings ect. It can seem as if your fingers are getting crazy.

    You just have to keep your cool and think of the end result :-)
