Work in progress (part2)
The layout of the necklace has changed as I've added the grey decorative edging. It is really starting to look like a small piece of a coral reef!!
The aspect I'm working on now is how the pendant part hangs from the neck piece. I wanted to make a meshlike, see-through section (the red freeform piece) which will work to keep the pendant in place, but the skin would show beneath.
I will probably add some embroidery and beads too. This is how it is today......I'm sure it will change again before it's complete ;)
