Ancient Warrior and Colorful Beads Necklace

I have been working on this necklace for about a month.  I used little bali style brass two-hole connectors to connect the two sides and had trouble keeping the strands from twisting when it was worn.  I must have taken it apart and restrung it about six times.  I finally decided that the outer strand needed to be just a tad longer than the inner strand.  Now, if you are careful to straighten everything up before you clasp it, it stays pretty well.

I really like this look - I want to credit Lynn Ferro for its inspiration.  She makes the most beautiful gypsy looking jewelry with a southwestern flair.  I love her work and have admired it for some time.

I like the way this turned out, but it is nothing like the work that Lynn does.  She's wonderful!

I Totally agree with you Jean!! When I first saw this necklace I thought, wow this looks like a necklace made by Lynn!! I'm in love with Lynn Ferro's jewelry; I'm a big fan of her. I already have a nice collection from her and can't wait to see her new creation. I've just discovered your jewelry not long ago. I really like it too! The combination of different beads and ceramic you use make them very unique. You are both very talented, and this necklace is stunning! Take care :))))
