I had this cut piece of leather that I'd stiffened with resin left over (it was a practice piece to test my ideas about resin and leather) from the Gorgeous Choker Swap, and I really wanted to use it. Then I came up with the idea of using up some of my sterling silver wire by making bullion. I played around with it for a while and came up with this, which uses up some spare freshwater pearls and a bit of silver chain that I'd been saving for just the right project.

What do you think? Boyfriend says it's strange, but I think I like it. The drapey silver loops make me think of a chandelier, you know? I would love to hear what YOU think. Wearable? Wonderful? Weird?



the toggle closure is on the side, in the front. I thought it looked neat there. Here's a picture of it on me, but I took it in a mirror, so it's reversed! =)

all of this, calm and reasonable as it was, made out of ordinary things as it was, was the truth now; beauty, that was the truth now. Beauty was everywhere. - Virginia Woolf

I think that it's different, but definitely not different in a bad way. It's really original, and I think it's only a matter of time before people are asking you where you got it. I like how the closure is on the side.

I agree, it reminds me of a chandelier in a really great way! Classy, dramatic, gorgeous!

That's a great idea - it wouldn't be nearly as cool without the bullion Smiley
