Hi, what you think of these designs?  I used some old link bracelets to create the necklaces.  I want to make a versatile necklace; you can wear it in the front or back and the clasp can be change to different link for different effects.

Intriguing and versatile!
I'm not sure that I would have given them a second glance in their former form (link bracelets), but like this, these are very interesting.

Very, very pretty.  It looks like it would be very expensive if sold in a store!

The colorful clothes are traditional clothing of Chinese Mao; the colors a usually very bright like the primary colors to florescent tones depending on the region.  I was influence by some the Hmong silver necklaces which the main decorations were to worn either in the front or hangs on the back.  I thought how about I make my own modern version of it.  Smiley

The Miao live in Yunnan, right? I thought the colors looked familiar. I lived in Yunnan last year as a study abroad student. I miss living there now!
