Deep Blue Sea - EBW

Pfew, it was a close shave this month, but I've finished the Challenge piece two days before the deadline.

The theme is "Ocean". Here are my waves. The original plan was to feature a large kyanite cabochon in the middle of the choker, and to make a wavy pattern on entire length of the necklace. It looked too busy and I had to cut it. The kyanite got replaced by a large Swarovski pendant, because the stone just did not want to play along with other crystals that I used to assemble the 3D RAW wave. It took a while to find a suitable ribbon... Then it was a long hunt for a clasp that I wanted to be sterling silver ribbon holder. Guess if I was glad to find it in France for couple of weeks ago. Did I get within three to five working days as was promised by the shop? Not really... So, I had to invent a wheal, in this case: clasp. Seen something similar once (work of Kristina Kristianson) and just borrowed the idea due to lack of time and inspiration.

Well, enough complaining - it actually does not look all too bad.

Great choices. Sometimes when you do battle with ideas, it's hard to like the results, but I think you did beautifully!
