Necklace

I finally got into my studio yesterday to make something real. This is what I ended up with a few hours later.

I haven't come up with a name for it yet. Thoughts or suggestions? I usually end up titling my work "Untitled". Original, right? 

So here are the materials that I used: ribbon (two widths), handmade market papers, glass beads, freshwater pearls, metal findings and metal chain. It is displayed on a linen jewelry mannequin. I was going for something in a monochromatic color family but I wanted splashes of metallic in there. This is a purely decorative, sculptural piece and is not meant to be worn. (Todd was pretty baffled by that point.) I was going to add some paper leaves but I think that would clutter it up too much. I think maybe my next necklace may be all leaves. I also wanted it to be way bigger but since this was my first attempt, I thought I would start smaller.
