Here's a fun project I just had to try, I used to make Macrame Necklaces back in Sixties, they were all the rage! Especially popular were Choker necklaces with some sort of macrame wrapped pendant.
This necklace goes all the way with a Carved Conch Pendant that I likened to a Comet, (or perhaps a weird Sea Creature), Doyle won the toss when he agreed it looked more like a Meteor.
The Macrame choker is going to be the base of many a future project, it's a simple design that I found drapes very well and has a unique look all its own! I love using industrial Findings for the closure instead of the usual knotted or buttoned clasp, it gives it a more modern edgy take!
This necklace is available in my Etsy Shop here.

The Carved Design of the Conch Pendant actually represents an Ancient Swirling Depiction of the Galaxy Spiraling it's way across the Universe.
This Necklace was made from Conch Shells Hand Collected by my Husband and Myself, my Husband cut the Pendant from the Heart of the Conch Shell, He then Shaped and Hand Polished it to Perfection. I then used my skills to Select the Design and Create this One of a Kind Jewelry made from All Natural Materials and Built to Last Generations.
Conch and Whelk Shell are considered Spiritual Objects by all Peoples around the World. They have been also used as Money and Signs of High Rank in Primitive Society.
I like to think these Gifts from the Sea Connect with You and Radiate Your Good Feelings Back Out to the Universe. They certainly do have a Grounded, Earthy Feeling that cannot be shown with pictures or described with words. They are very hard to take off or put down.
I Hope This Necklace and Earrings Set brings you all the Goodness in this Life You Need, and my Best Wishes Go With Them to You.
