Kallista Necklace

I have had requests to make some of my necklace patterns available.  I had actually been thinking about it for a while so I debated with myself some more and decided that yes, I would.  The shape of this particular one reminded me of a lyre or an amphora so, inspired by the greek idea, I called it Kallista.

Here are my testers.  This is a pattern I came up with last year and I have two versions of it for sale in my shop. The pattern was only written in brief note form for myself so I had to work it a few times more and write the pattern out in more detail.  I also added a diagram.

I nearly called it something else though... because when my daughter looked at it, she said it looked like two little birds on a nest...

See what she means?  I think that's sweet.

Do you like the name?
Or should I have called it "Little Birds"?

Here is the black version of it that's currently available in my shop.

Best wishes,
