I'm addicted to DDR. I need a 12-step program.

Finished version of the rough draft posted here:
http://www.craftster.org/forum/index.php?topic=241606.0

I had a lot of requests to see the finished product, so here it is. It looks much better in person - it hangs much more naturally and the colors aren't showing up correctly here. My photography skills really don't do it justice.  Embarrassed

I had trouble with the design. I had wanted more strands for a fuller look, but couldn't seem to add them without taking away from the V shape of the ends of the strands, which is what I liked most about the necklace. After I'd already finished the necklace and it had been worn for the wedding, someone suggested putting shorter strands between. If I ever make another, I'll definitely try that, because I think that make it look fuller, while still keeping the dramatic angle. And a friend of mine just got engaged, so it might be fairly soon (if she likes it, that is!). Smiley

But we have flamethrowers. And what this indicates to me, it means that at some point, some person said to himself, "Gee, I sure would like to set those people on fire over there. But I'm way too far away to get the job done. If only I had something that would throw flame on them."

I love this!  I think your original is nice, but this one is more elegant and refined.  I love the crystals instead of the cat's eyes!

Thanks! The cat's eyes were just to cobble a basic design together - I couldn't afford to buy that many Swarovski crystals and then change the design! Cheesy
