Anyway, you might then understand how excited I was to get the opportunity to make some necklaces to compliment a variety of Native American pendants, for Toh-Atin Gallery in Durango. I was sent home with five of them, and was given complete freedom to create necklaces which I felt were appropriate for each piece. Here are some pictures >>----->
<---<< This is a Wedding Basket pendant made by Roland Begay. I paired it with a Pretty by JL Wrap in silks of >>-----> taupe :: black :: cream
The wrap measures approximately 26" and can be wrapped around, on some, twice to be worn as a choker >>----->
Here's another Pretty by JL Wrap made to compliment this Jimmy Poyer piece >>----->
I used silks of >>-----> aqua :: black :: cream
<---<< Here's how it looks doubled up >>----->
Next I did a Pretty by JL, 5 strand, Twist Necklace measuring approximately 18". The silks are of >>-----> black :: cream :: light gray >>----->
For this pretty little turquoise and sterling silver piece I made a Pretty by JL Braid Necklace measuring approximately 16".
It is in silks of >>-----> pale blue :: pale blue :: light grey >>----->

pale blue :: taupe :: black >>----->
Pretty by JL necklaces still have our trade mark fringe & flair that you've grown to love! Here is the back view of the above Pretty by JL Braid necklace >>----->
