Also: I came across a picture recently of a Viking necklace. It's 14 granulated beads- in silver (most pics of ancient granulation I've seen have been of gold)- with 7 graduated-sized pendants of clear quartz in granulated settings.

Wow.

I am getting so, so tempted to try a re-creation. If not of all 21 elements, at least of a few of the beads and maybe a couple of the pendants. I'm thinking amber instead of clear quartz, though, since I have a fighting chance of finding appropriately-sized amber and the quartz- not so much.

I do realize this is insane. :)

Posted! But since I have no right to do that in any way, shape or form, I'll probably not leave it up for more than a few days. :)

However- you can see the wonderfulness!
