The never-ending necklace

. . . is getting close to being finished. It is nothing at all like the way it started out; every part of it has changed at least once, and more often twice. The only constant is the maille focal, and even that has been turned 90 degrees, and given a few extra rings.

But it's really quite pretty, now. I have one more section to bead, and it's a mirror image of the side that is already done, so I'm not anticipating any more changes. It's funny: sometimes designs just come together and it all flows, and other times it is more of a struggle. I don't think I've ever had a piece go through quite so many transformations, however.

Whew. I'm actually going to finish this one!
