Polymer Circle Necklace

 I wanted an exaggerated length on a necklace for this tunic top.  I made a polymer clay mold of an old round belt component, poked 4 holes in the bottom, baked it and when cooled, looped the cording through the holes, looped some satin cording around the top and I had exactly what I wanted.
You can use leather or metal stamping tools, or leave plain.  
Yes, you could macrame or braid the cording for another effect, but I like the movement of the long cords.Below is an example of the belt component I spoke of, only mine was an old, worn leather belt from GoodWill.   The below Brighton belt is from Zappos.

Very striking, and with movement!
