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 :)
