AND, several days later.....

Well, the one day project was greatly sidelined when the flu took over my life for a few days.  But I've finally finished and am ready to present the final version of "You Hold the Key to My Heart" Necklace.  Although it isn't traditional Valentine red, pink, and white, it still would be a nice way to celebrate the day. 
This lyrical link became my favorite piece of the necklace as soon as it was finished.  It serves as a neat way to connect the pendant to the main body of the necklace. 
Then the closure turned out pretty nice, too.
I love the combination of hand forged steel elements, the white agate beads, Czech glass fire polished rondelles, and Turquoise Jade Cylinder beads.  Lots of elements to catch the attention.
