I was thinking sturdy felt wrapped in fabric...

I'm thinking vinyl from the fabric store would be really quick and easy. If you use tissue or have a Teflon foot you could sew on some details.

Duct tape?  Not sure how you'd do it but I've seen some lovely things made from it.

I always thought that was a necklace similar to the tan ones in the shop the swap:  http://www.craftster.org/forum/index.php?topic=199218.msg2115227#msg2115227  (need to scroll down a bit, but it's in that post).

That looks like it is supposed to be a necklace made of turquoise beads, most likely wheels or chips. You can buy these beads but they are pricey.

I would make the flat beads from polymer clay too.  I think it would be the most authentic looking without actually using real turquoise.
here is a link with lists of the bead types
I would look at the chips and wheels

My first thought was to use craft foam (the adhesive backed kind that comes in sheets) and cut out the shapes for each "bead" twice. Lay out a circle of elastic cord and put each bead in place, adhesive sides together with the cord sandwiched in between.
It wouldn't be sturdy but would be inexpensive to make.
How heavy is the pendant part?

Why dont you just use fabric? Make a simple pattern for your neck, get some really pretty taffeta or cool blue fabric, add some iron on stabilizer and WAHLA. You could also do some basic surface embroidery on the sewing machine for all the individual lines and things. I think it would look neat.

when i was small i was given a kit to make that necklace, you might be able to still find it out there, and see how it's done, but it was all made from polymer clay..

Well the Pocahontas walking around Disney World wears a plastic necklace, so you could probably make a copy out of polymer clay. I have picture here:

It looks like faux turquois, there's probably a tutorial for making that out of polymer clay floating around somewhere.

Here's a weird page I found, that seems like a nice, cheap solution to your question.
 I was looking for that stuff they sell in craft stores that comes as a thin bar. It's plastic, you put it in hot water and it molds into whatever shape you want, then solidifies. But maybe it was a health hazard, because I couldn't find it and haven't bought it in a long time.

Good luck at any rate!
