Shopped for beads and chain today. I had made a necklace from some beautiful materials, but I am not satisfied with how it came together.
I have a brass octopus too, but am still having design issues with it. I keep collecting possible components for these. Today I made some progress at Hobby Lobby. I think keeping it more metallic, with more chain and less beads will help me achieve the effect I'm wanting. I'd love to hear comments on what you would expect to pay for this necklace as-is. Then I'll post again when I perfect the design, and see how much the value goes up.
