Using Up the Stash #14 - More Infinity Knots and Green Glass

I thought I was done, but turns out this piece is still in progress. I find it interesting how after I photograph something to post about it, I take a new look and decide there's something else needed...

Anyway, I had the infinity knot links lying around since I made my St. Patrick's Day bracelet and decided to just start fiddling and playing around with them, the brass chain, brass head pins and some, smaller, lighter green, cathedral beads.

Here's where the design has taken me so far:




Can you see where I think I need to add two more links and something - probably chain with beads, to the design?

I have not yet heard from texinlulu about claiming her prize - I'll give her a couple more days then I'll re-draw and award the prize to someone else.

See you tomorrow for Weekly Wanderings, I hope!

I think the necklace is very pretty. But I see what you mean about adding something to it... I think it works by itself but needs to be pushed a tiny bit farther. I'm just not sure where.

I'm not sure if maybe adding a little dangle (made up from one of the green beads) to the center knot (the one on the chain strand, not the beaded strand) would add a little something or just be too much. I also thought of maybe switching out one of the knots in the center for a different focal... something silver and fitting into the design.

I dunno. I like it the way it is but I do see what you mean about adding something to give it "upmh."
