The calculations: balance of colors and weaves when the necklace is doubled or tripled. Rather fun working with felt-tips for design!
*weaves that were roughly comparable in volume - chaos, orbital, byzantine;
*metallic colors - silver, gold, bronze, in various combinations;
*patchwork - using different colors for different weaves in different lengths.
The necklace: very exciting!
Doubled and tripled:
The clasp is a big ring, so one end of the necklace can be pulled through to do other things, like be wrapped into a knot.
I spent at least four months pondering this project, but when it came together, it flowed - I can't wait to do another one!
