This piece started off life as a pendant ... and silly me changed my mind and decided to make a collar instead. Hit me across the head now!!! LOL ... anyway, I set about designing the collar around the original pendant and this is the end result.
Representing the ocean and the reef ... The turquoise Lampwork beadies are by Jan CahillI, I also used lots and lots of seedies, Swarovski Pearls and Crystals. The fringing I have kept to a minimum (I'm not the biggest fringe person) 1. because I wanted to cover the join of where the original pendant and collar pieces meet and 2. the piece is fairly elaborate and I didn't want an over the top fringe to go with it.
Took over 30 hours to make over the last 3 months ... yes it took me a while .. with starting work and just generally being busy I could only get into it a couple of hours a week. Anyway I hope you like it.
