First, is a stodgy and imposing sort of pendant. It's composed of a large, heavy, dull gray steel ...wheel? I don't know what the heck it is. It was interesting and unusual and I could see possibilities.
|It's a necklace and a bludgeoning implement.|
The 'wheel' acts as the focal, drawing attention towards itself with its heavy shape and sparkling rhinestones. I didn't want the necklace to look like a grungy chain with a rock on it, so I added some swarovskis and a tassel at the end of the focal to feminize it a bit.
Still, the industrial look of this particular opera length necklace isn't for everyone. Thanks to the copious sparkle, it CAN be worn as an edgy accessory to a more formal outfit or to dress up a very casual ensemble.
As I was struggling to get good pictures of this design, I kept thinking that I needed a model to help me truly showcase it. Sorry to bother a cliche, but the photos do it no justice. Anyone know anybody who'd pose for pictures in sparkly stuff in exchange for small gifts?
