I actually started off with a different idea. I was making little "bows" (inspiration from Edwige Renaudin's book) which I do like the look of but I found they don't behave well as they are independent elements and some of the bows ended up upside down when worn and I thought it looked a little messy. So I started again and ended up with the design above.
I still like the little bows and may use them again in another design.
Here's what the necklace looks like when worn:
Yes, I think I'm satisfied with that.
I hope the lady will like it.
Off to make another one!
