Dear family and friends !
As promised, I want to talk. I want to talk about asymmetrical necklace
I come from country where necklaces usually are symmetrical. Many of you
have noticed that about my work. I have not really thought about it before,
but lately, while browsing trough my huge pile of US crafts & arts
magazines (Thank You, Jeanne !) I have noted that it is very common in the
US to have non-symmetrical necklace designs. As polyclay is so light
material it probably would be good for non- symmetrical designs, but to my
surprise most of the polyclay work I have seen has been symmetrical or at
least mostly symmetrical.
As I really do not know anything about designing non-symmetrical jewellery,
I was wondering if there are anyone who knows more about this one or could
give some tips for designing or constructing the pieces. For instance how
does one handle the weight problem with those designs ? Putting stones
inside the "lighter" sides beads or what ? Or are those asymmetrical
necklaces meant to be warn at all...
