The hardest necklace I've ever had to do!

I was asked recently to make this unusual necklace.  I've not seen one like it before and she was having difficulty finding one.  It's like a huge choker which resembles the necklace hoops worn by African ladies, the Masai Mara?  I don't know anyway, flowing from the choker bit are strands of beads which fall right down to the navel.  it's huge!  I have added in some crystals to give it some sparkle, but for the most part it is made of acrylic gold beads.  Even so it's still amazingly heavy, I don't envy this lady wearing it at all to be honest.  I just hope it does the job for her. 

The upshot is, however, that she wants me to be featured in a magazine, I've no idea which one, but it could very good exposure, so we'll see.  I'll keep you posted and let you know which one.
