Follow Your Dreams

Recently I was commissioned by one of my Patron-Saint-Customers to make them a necklace - "something they would love". That makes me crazy - so I decided to 'sleep on it' rather than sweat about it....that night I dreampt about this necklace (interestingly, that next morning was when I received the comment from Jenny that she, too, was having dreams about necklaces...)
Anyway - the past couple days I've been putting it together when I need a break from soldered glass pendants...I'll have to make another {neater} one for my customer, but here is the first draft. Tell me honestly what you think....
It has a glass bauble soldered in the middle of a piece of etched copper. The word "Dreams" is stamped on a piece of sterling silver which is riveted on the inside and shows through the bauble...
Lots of rocks and doo-dads.

Who wouldn't want this necklace? I love this necklace. It is beautiful, creative, and inspirational. If this is only the rough draft, then what is the next one going to look like? A little piece of art you can wear around your neck.
