My first shot at a "Bib" necklace...

About this design:

My sister was my inspiration for this piece.. After she told me about how much she wanted a "Bib" necklace
i thought I would give it a try.


For the chain I used an old 5 strand necklace i had in a junk drawer. 8x8 black AB crystal cubes, marbled glass pearls,6 mm black AB crystal cubes, 6mm crystal cubes, head pins, and jumprings.
