I saw these oversized metal chains and couldn't resist - I had to have them. My aim was to mix a sort of old-fashioned Victorian style with a modern-goth vibe, but I don't know if this experiment worked so well. I think I need to tweak this one some more.

The maroon ribbon is made of polyester with the ends sewn shut, and the charms include a black cameo and a white nugget pearl. It's a variation on the pink cameo piece.

Yeah, definitely needs some tweaking.

I like the idea of it, but something is off. I like the individual elements (especially the chain) but when put together I am not sure either.

Thanks for the feedback! I was glad to get another opinion on this.

Have you tried to actually *wear* one of your assymetrical designs? Invariably, gravity takes over and the heaviest part of the necklace (which would be the pendant) will slide to the middle. It looks beautiful but I would abandon the assymetrical design altogether if you are going to anchor it with a heavy piece that will just slide toward the cleavage. It will lose its effect.
