asymmetrical leather choker with brass swirl charm

16 gauge brass wire for wrapping leather ends & making the clasp. hammered 12 gauge brass wire – round, half-hard, for the swirl-charm. calf-skin leather lace for the cords.
i’m still trying to figure out shooting pics on a black velvet display bust (inside a cardboard & tracing paper lightbox) ha. ANYWAY — i CAN see from these pics it can use a little ‘tightening up’ as far as bits of leather that need snipping and maybe some more ‘tucking in’ of a wire. i wore it all day yesterday and it stayed in place with the clasp on the side so that’s good :)

Love the simplicity. I need to learn to make good clasps, yours look great. I hate pictures, they seem to bring out every little imperfection that you don’t see. I guess that is a good thing.

that clasp i made directly from a fire mtn gems tutorial — ‘forming a wire hook-and-eye clasp’. i did that one in the picture exactly like the tutorial, but with 16 gauge wire. i don’t know if i can post the link here, but i’ll try.
