Project Description:

She's A Key-per Necklace, 18"

I love working with this micro-fiber suede. Using silver against black is greatness! This piece is definitely one of a kind!

Rating She's a Key=per
 
I made this necklace this week and I love it. This is the first time I have used sterling silver components. It definately makes a difference to use the more expensive pieces. I also will use the black microfiber strips again. They are very ocmfortable around the neck.
