But, no matter. I'd made a couple of moonstone links with lots of swirls and balls of silver quite some time ago; I used one for a bracelet, but then I lost momentum and put the other one in my tray to wait awhile. It came out yesterday, and it is going to be a necklace with heavy silver links and pearls. Maybe some Renaissance-y swirls and drapes; I haven't decided yet.
It isn't ornate, well, at least not yet, but it sure is opulent. So I'll leave it at that, and see what happens next.
