I’ve never made a necklace like this before:

In this case, the pendant started out it’s life intending to be one of a pair of earrings.  It didn’t work out because the shapes came out uneven.  I didn’t want to scrap the whole project though so I added a couple of jump rings and a lemon quartz briolette and this pendant was born.

It seemed inappropriate to hang this on a chain–it was begging for something more choker-like.  It would’ve been fairly easy to make my own neckwire, but I was lazy and purchased a ready-made one from Rio Grande.  I might have to make it slightly smaller–I haven’t decided yet.

Overall though I do like this necklace, if only because I don’t have anything else like it.

    A beautiful accident… by the way that hooded sweater looks great… did you really knit it in the round and then cut the front open? How did that go for you?

    Hey Liz,
    The hooded sweater was “knit in the round,” but technically, I guess it wasn’t, because you do it back and forth the way you do it on straight needles. But the structure is like knitting a pullover in that you knit the two sleeves separately and attach them and knit everything all at once (hard to explain). This method results in minimal seaming. I’d never knit cardy like that before, nor have I knit a pullover like that. Now that I’ve done it I’m going to knit as much as I can “in the round!”
