Double-Strand Twiggy Necklace

I've been working on a prototype for a necklace that I'll eventually make in silver with semi-precious stones and glass beads. I'm a little tired of it because I've been working with the same form for a while, but what do you think?


Back (the little twiggy accents end up just at the back of the neck):
The chain is all handmade, by the way, which was another new experiment. I think the way it looks works well with the organic look of the links. It's also helpful because that way I can make chain to precisely match whatever wire I'm using.

Large Map Project

The stop-motion project I linked to a little while ago was part of creating the largest map I've attempted so far (18" x 24"), which is finally somewhat finished. I'm still debating whether I want to make it a little more visually interesting by coloring in all the houses (like some of my previous maps).
Details (the photos got really blown out for some reason):

And the full map!:
