Nja Necklace by Artsee1 Nja Necklace by Artsee1
I found a wonderful inspiration on DA, NjaDean :iconnjadean: We did a trade for her piece and my silver ring I asked her if I could try and mimic her style. She was extremely kind and gave me the go-ahead.

This piece took quite a while as the process to make the cord is pretty time consuming. In addition to making the cord, I made several glass beads. I also cut, cabbed and polished the focal stone (Septarian Nodule) and set it into a bezel that was also cut, sanded and soldered by me.

Ha- You're right. I never notice that. My skin fluctuates so quickly from tan too white. I usually where this over a turtle neck so it helps... but really good crit for making it better. Thanks-

So many different aspects to this piece. The necklace was about 8 hours (at least), then cabbed the stone (30 minutes), cut and polished the meta (4 hours), made glass beads (2 hours) and then beaded everything together (2 hours). When I add it up it seems like so much more than 16.5 hours... so I guess what I'm saying is it took a LONG time! :)

Thanks for the appreciation-

Great avatar... she probably makes me dance more than I make her... since she was the originator and all. But a long time DA friend so I know she would be joining in.

Whoa, very funky/cool @ the same time.. I love all the earthy/natural colors in here.They work very well with the focal stone, as well as all the small accents in it. Very organic!
