Victorian with a bit of Fantasy

With the amount of supplies I have accumulated lately, it's no wonder I sometimes forget what I have in stock. While my jewelry components are well organized, I find that my sewing bits - not so much! So when I happened to find some beautiful long black fringe left over from an old sewing project recently, I just knew I had to make something with it. But what to make? Well it turns out I didn't have to think for too long before I already had a couple of designs in my head. My thoughts went to creating this black velvet choker - Victorian style - but with a bit of fantasy.Pretty black velvet ribbon, a beautiful oxidized silver over brass stamping with a black onyx cabochon as the focal and my latest choker took shape. I finished it off with an extension chain and a pretty teardrop onyx bead.
