Elvis or Elvish?

Just another testament to the versatility of the basic right-angle weave necklace base:

I started with the same base as the Desert Crystal necklace, but this time, I stitched bezels for three Swarovski stones directly into the right-angle weave. Then I added a heck of a lot of Lucite from The Hole Bead Shop, dangled a ginormous crystal pendant from the center of the necklace, and added a magnetic clasp.

I had envisioned more embellishment on this one, but since I'm still feeling totally crappy this afternoon, I think that will wait for another day. I still have loads of Chinese crystal, Swarovski crystal and Lucite that could be added to this necklace. I had also envisioned several strands of leaf fringe interwoven with the exposed right-angle weave neck strap. I'll have to see about that.

Next up, I want to give Laura Zeiner's Enchanted Evenings bracelet a try. She sent me the most wonderful carved skulls for this one, but I'm not sure I want a bracelet. I just stocked up on some rather unusual chains, and I'm thinking a necklace might work better for this...
