I wanted something that still had the movement (chain and dongles all move around loose) but looked a bit busier than the fine stuff usually did. After I finish this one off, I am thinking I might make a big chunky one again...... WAY less hours of work to do the big stuff for sure. I will try to remember to upload a pic of the final result. The only issue I have now is finding exactly the right clasps for these buggers. I have made glass ones which don't feel completely safe and did find a fabulous large ornate parrot clasp design that was perfect..... just not precious metal! I think I might buy a few large parrot clasps in sterling silver at about $20 each, it would be a bit of a waste to spend days upons days making this style to throw some cheap-arse crappy clasp on it..... it seems there is always a challenge some days!
