I really like it. i'd wear it as a necklace, if it were large enough. with a larger more ornate clasp to compliment that gorgeous wirework. i really love that wirework. tlh

That's lovely! I'd definitely wear it!
Your curves are so neat, and the lampwork beads are gorgeous. It's really simple, but beautful!

This is really beautiful. The Wirework is great. Can you do an action shot? I'd like to see how it looks on you.

Thank you everyone - I always swing between moods when I'm making something - I'll think it's wonderful while I'm doing it then after I've finished it's always 'what was I thinking? this is awful!' so your comments mean a lot to me.

I think you're right tlh, it needs a fancier clasp and Cacarae I'm always happy to swap!

I *love* the way you did the twirls.  Depending on the strength of the wire, you could make a second straight piece that slides through two of the holes to make a hair thing like this: http://www.jaminleather.net/images/ah202but_4073.jpg
