  1. Wow, interesting piece. Looks a little uncomfortable though.

  2. It’s not actually. The pieces are flexible and it can be tied a bit lower on the neck for those who don’t like chokers. Still, I’ve thought about doing a one or three motif variation (this one is four) for those who like something less bulky. Thanks for stopping by!

  3. I love this Kait! Are these playing cards? I wonder if you could make a ring that wouldn’t get crushed the first time you wear it. Hmmmm…

  4. Yes, playing cards laminated on a flexible rubber sheet. I hadn’t even thought of rings! Now the wheels are turning….:)
