I made this necklace using two different chainmail weaves and turquiose blue "miracle" beads.  The body of the necklace is European 4-in-1 weave using two different sizes of copper rings with a row of 1/8" peacock-blue rings edging the top of the front.  The part that goes around the back of the neck is Persian weave.  I like using lobster clasps because they're so secure.  I made "drops" using head pins and glass beads.  I used the wrapped loop technique to make them a bit more decorative and finished looking.  I think this looks very Southwestern, but I have many6 friend who say it looks more like an Egyptian collr.  What do you think?

By the way, the date on the photo is not acorrect.  We hadn't set the date.  This photo was actually taken about a year and a half ago.
