You Were Wild Once

Image of You Were Wild Once

"You were wild once, don't let them tame you." --Isadora Duncan

This lovely quotation on a bead made by artist Anne Choi inspired me to create a bold necklace. Chain links of hunky 14-gauge Argentium alternate with vintage brass found at the Paris flea market. Rather than regularly alternating the two, I have chosen to join them in an asymmetrical way; for me this create more interest and rhythm to the necklace, while allowing the focal pieces to stand out.
I paired the 'Wild' bead with a wonderful resin tiger bead from Germany.

This piece is a great reminder to always stay in touch with our instinctive side. Personally, I sometimes hesitate when an idea might seem too outre' or obscure. But when I relax and follow my heart, those are always my most successful ventures.

Necklace is 20.5 inches long, sterling silver clasp.

Do you prefer a longer, clasp-free necklace? I'll be happy to extend it to 24 inches, or to your specification.
