Linking Rings Memory Leaf

This fabulous nekclace (i was soo pleased to see that it turned out well... it was an experiment with ring-sized memory wire and multi-strand bridges. It got pretty complex pretty fast, when the memory wire suddenly lost it's "wrap".... but i knew my components could take the stress. The leaves (large and small) are, of course polymer clay with a makume game outer layer (used rust, gold and green pearl-ex, metallic leaf, and layered a think sheet of rust every 5th layer) Othe rthan the clay and memory wire.. i combined dyed freshwater pearls (top-drilled) in cranberry, goldenrod and several greens, the silver-toned 2-strand bridge had a nice stamped design that added a nice element, and i sprinkled in foil-lined glass "e" beads in reds and golds.
