Gotham. The name of my newest necklace. It made me think of the Batman universe, all gloomy and dark. I think the inspiring factor was the way the hematit colored small cubes lined up next to the pendant.  

In this piece I´ve used RAW, mostly, except for the focal. RAW has a funny way of taking over things for me, I never quite know what the piece will be like when I start out. I am not exactly thrilled about the colors here, but I wont rip it up, took too long to make . ;)

 

 

 

Ok, thanks for looing, everyone, and happy beading easter to you all!

This is a great piece. I'd hate to think of it being ripped apart. I like everything about it.

I really like the colors.  I think this would look GREAT on a white tee-shirt !

Well if you look at it the batman movies have the same shades hence the name is apt for this necklace.. Imagine a heroine of the same movie wearing this same priceless necklace and the movie titled Gotham for it.  ^_^ My imagination is running around (giggle)

I love the colour combinations you have used in this piece of handmade jewellery.

I like the design it looks quite Egyptian in style and I am sure that it is going to look even nicer when it is worn.

I also like the contrast between the mat and the shiny beads, a beautiful piece of jewellery

It does look like a very beautiful Egyptian collar.  You did a fantastic job.

If I might say, I think we are very critical of our own work.  A good idea after making a piece, especially a time intensive piece, is to put it away for a few days, maybe even a month and then take it out and see it with brand new eyes.  You will then be able to see the artistic beauty like everyone else does.  You may even be really impressed with yourself, which is a very good thing - in balance, of course.
