Asymetrical neo-victorian necklace!! I made this necklace from heaps of sterling chain, freshwater pearls, swarovski crystals, and a vintage cabochon from an old bracelet.
This piece, for me, was very experimental as I rarely work with chain and have never done a design like this. Considering all that, I think it came out really nicely.

I was partially inspired by the steampunk swap that is currently going on. It was my introduction to neo-victorianism. By the way, do you all think that this piece falls under that category??





ideally, this is how it would lay.




comments welcome!!  Cheesy

I love Victorian style jewellery with the draped chains and danglies, so this is nearly perfect to me Grin The only thing I would do differently would be to put blue crystals on the danglies to tie in with the blue cab. Swarovski do a colour called Capri Blue that I would say is pretty darn close.

Beautiful work! I love the asymmetricalness of the necklace and the main cabochon's very pretty. Simple in front, complicated on side.

Beautiful work!  I'd say it falls into the category nicely.  The victorians were into lavish baubles and it also has a modern edge to it.
