The Year of Jewelry Project, Week 4

Free-form and loose are not words usually associated with my work.  Precise and controlled more accurately describe my typical style, so I am using this weekly project to try to expand out of my comfort zone.  I wish I could take full credit for inventing this piece, but the general design of this necklace, particularly the squiggly base and a couple of the charms were "borrowed" directly from a pin by Dia Daniels in the Feb-March 2011 issue of Step by Step Wire Jewelry.

  1. I really like the way the clasp is made.

  2. Thank you. I tried to make the clasp fit with the design of the base of the necklace.
