I had a lot of coral after a custom necklace order, so I decided to make a large statement piece.  I did not have a pattern or even much of a plan.  I just started weaving, braiding, and layering different strands of coral.  The center charm is the only part that is not actually coral.  After playing around with it for awhile, this is what I ended up with.

I'm too petite to wear big statement pieces but this looks fantastic, great job!

Very cool! Love the splash of red. And coral can be such a fun substance to work with. Love the way the chips are layered... gives the piece such dimension!

Another cool thing to do with coral is to pair it with black onyx and silver-- this can create a very striking look. Smiley

This is so gorgeous. I can't find a link anywhere for a site where you sell your stuff, do you have one? I would buy a necklace like this in a flash, it is just my style and my absolute favourite colour. Just beautiful, I love it.
