Sketchbook Project: Part 3
Nancy Eggert’s “Something Odd ” necklace is finished! If you’ve been paying attention, you know that Nancy was selected as the winner of my design contest. I am making her design for her. In past posts I showed how I made one component of the necklace. All nine squggle charms have been made and attached to a knotted cotton cord. See below.
Last, since Nancy didn’t specify, I created a toggle styled clasp that complements Nancy’s original design.
I thought the necklace was finished, but noticed that some of the disks were slipping off of the necklace. Each piece is kinetic, moving freely. After examining the problem, I discovered that the holes in the disks had stretched during the shaping process, enough that the slats no longer held them in place. I remade them with smaller holes, and all is well.
