ok, WHEW I'm so glad you like it! I was worried that it would be too weird or out there or...you know, whatever. anxiety =) (and thanks, everyone!)
It's actually made of leather. I cut all the pieces and then painted them with a couple coats of resin, because I wanted to stiffen the leather. I realized later that I'd basically "made" vinyl and kinda kicked myself for that. =)
so yes, it's flexible/shapes/bends a little, but it's also stiffer than just plain leather. I really did make vinyl. Still feeling silly about that ...
can't WAIT to see what you made, maehem! =) Oh, and I have some other pics of the necklace - at least one is on my blog, if you want to see:
yaaaaay! I'm so glad you like it!
