    Thank you so much, ladies! :D I was really worried that the big chuck of turquoise would make this necklace hang funny (and lately, it seems, nothing ever goes right the first time), but it is actually well balanced in the design.

    NICE!!! Definitely a classy look, and nice and earthy too! I like how versatile this is too – would be great with casual or dressy clothes. Excellent piece – and that turquoise is a showstopper!

    This is so amazing. Love where the cones are in the front, the viking knit, the huge turquoise nugget. Basically I love it all. I would so wear this with a pair of jeans! Nice!!!

    Pretty, pretty! I found a tutorial on viking knit, and am just itching to try it. Maybe, today, on my birthday, I can sit around and play instead of doing dishes.
