I started out trying to make a wire-wrapped harp pendant for a friend, and while I think I captured the instrument, I didn't find any appropriate spots to add pretty beads or such. As it turned out, it just seemed too plain, so I thought I'd try and make a full necklace to make it more special. I think the results are okay, but I'm not entirely sure of the addition of the harp. Any ideas?

C&C appreciated Smiley

I really like the overall design but I agree with you that the harp placement seems odd. Maybe you could place it between some of the multi layers? Like from the top silver chain, I would take the first brass(?) chain under it out. Does that make sense? That way it could still seem like a focal piece.

I like the overall piece, but also agree with the harp placement. Maybe put it on the highest chain to make it the focal.  Smiley
