New Necklace Worn

I have had this design tumbling around in a head for a few weeks now. Yesterday I finally brought it to life. It has me thinking "hmmmm... I don't know about you." I can't decide if I love it or hate it. Sorry, hate is a strong word. I should say I just don't really care for it.

When I wore it for this photo, I was thinking it reminded me of a breast plate kind of necklace that I imagine Cleopatra might have worn. Certainly, she wouldn't have worn this one, lol, but you get what I mean. It takes up space on your neckline. It is full without being heavy. It is colorful. The bead spins! It is all of my favorite things!! Yet still... I don't know about this one.

And as happens with things I am not madly in love with, I can't think of a name for this "New Necklace". I want a name that fits with Alice in Wonderland. This bead is from that "series", all checker boarded and magical. There is another checker boarded bead on a design that I posted a photo of in my Flickr gallery. (Just a little FYI, I will be posting all my photos on Flickr to then post them here with some extra "views" too, so pop over there from time to time to see what is up.) If a name comes to mind, please share it. Oh, and you should know, this pretty bead is smaller then a ping pong ball, but much larger then a grape. I am lovin' chunky at the moment!!

Hey lady! I have to agree with you on this piece! The focal is great! The first thing that came to my mind was "Down the Rabbit Hole". If I were to have you make this piece for me, I would (now this is just my opinon) have it from a sterling rolo chain. The focal needs to be the focal...the seed beads got my attention first. Lord, sorry, not like you asked for me two cents! Anyway! You are always growing with your designs and I love it! You never stand still! Have a great Sunday!

I was thinking the same thing as Leslie...and just headed over here to write the front...the sides ...not so much.

The front is very cool and graphic, the seed beads throw me off.

I can't wait to see more....
