What inspired this design? A cupchain I received from a friend in Texas last year that was laying around and gathering dust. I really wanted to make something special with it so she would say, ''she did something worthy with my gift to her.''
How did it come together? Well it started with the cupchain, I checked the flexibility and the length and I figured it's long enough to make a soutache snake and put them on top of there... Nothing was pre-designed or pre-drawn I just took it one part at the time not really knowing what the next day would bring.
