men's jewelry

ive never made men's jewelry before. a friend of mine asked me to make him a necklace that looks like the rosary from boondock saints. i searched high and low trying to find a cross that was comparable, and FINALLY i found one- at walmart, of all places. they had these wooden beads that i was looking for too. i was so excited to find them there. i had actually tried to make this several times, with different beads, different cords, and different crosses, but i just wasnt happy with the result. unlike most things in life, with my art, i can never say, "eh, good enough," it has to be perfect. anyway, im very pleased with how this one turned out, and now im thinking of making a few more men's pieces to sell at the street fair. if i have time, you know.
