I wanted to call it a lariat necklace but it technically doesn't have the front closure that a true lariat necklace has. Hence the name "Dangle." I do love it, though. The necklace is 28" long at the end of the longest dangle, a large black pearl with a clear bicone crystal bead attached. There are also two wire-wrapped crystal beads and a filigree silver orb. The colors are definitely "smoky," hence the name Angela's Ashes (and the fact that I love Frank McCourt's writing). Anyway, here's another view:
I've worn a few hand made necklaces very similar to this one and have gotten many compliments ~ it's just different enough, you know? I LoVe it!
Wanted to add it to my Etsy site tonight but I have a backlog of tivo'd House episodes to watch ~ guess Etsy will have to wait till tomorrow! Ciao.
