To be honest, is started out as a bracelet.  I had measured out the length using my own wrist.  after I was done with this part, I started taking a good hard look at it, and thought that it would be better off as a necklace.

For those of you who visit my etsy page, this is the same weave I used for the Hearts on Chain bracelet.  I used this as a common link to the main part of the necklace.  I

figured that it would be a nice way to incorporate a little chain art in with the charms that I used.

I used faux pandora beads in the piece because I thought they were appropriate for what I was trying to do.  A lot of people put these on ready-made chains with spacers, but I like to do things differently.
