 May 4 - Hats Off Challenge - the Reveal

There are a lot of Challenges going on, and I ♥love♥ love♥ love♥ it to participate...

What I see helps me to think outside my own -safe- box. What a Challenge this one is too!
Bobbie Rafferty is the big initiator, and let me thank her first for organizing it.
Today -May 4-  is Kentucky Derby Day and our Reveal Day too.

We could pick a picture from her weblog to inspire us. Any piece of jewellery
is allowed to make. I choose to design a necklace in black & white.
I'm fond of black and white, okay, my own safe box :-) but... I really love that color
combination, for years!!! :-))))) So, here's the picture that inspired me
and this is the necklace I designed:

"Baby it's just Black and White"!
