The sterling end caps are on completely tight. Amazing! I doubt I'll have to crimp the ends, just deciding whether they'd be prettier if I did.
I'm wearing the one with the heart pendant on it. Hm. The design is good in the "stable" sense...I lay down and took a nap today with it on, half-wondering if something would pop in my sleep, got up...everything looks fine. It's a bit eerie actually, I expected the six chains in front to tangle up somewhat.
Now...is the design fantastic or craptastic? That I do not know yet. I don't usually do big chunky beads, or red beads, or even glass as much these days, and I have little experience with leather cord beyond making a simple cord for pendants. It's comfortable though, not too heavy, since it's only just the three beads.
The other piece looks okay too, I'll figure that one out tomorrow.
Oh and cough cough How about someone making wire guardians for leather cord? Wouldn't that be nice? I'll have to see if there's already something like that...as far as I know, french wire is usually quite small, designed for silk or softflex.
