The Lion Roars- or maybe he just growls.

 A few days ago I shared a beginning picture of a Mt Lion piece I was working on. Although, I did change my mind about half way through, and reworked my original "plan". But here he is and I am happy with the way he turned out. I used a spiral stitch rope for the Necklace with a 14kt Goldplate Toggle clasp. I centered the rope On a Bone hairpipe Bead.  The Lion cabochon I purchased from Kristie at Sculptedwindows on Etsy. If you are not already familiar with her work, check it out. She is a true master at her craft! I love her work and have another piece of hers..An eagle..She also has a Blog you can check out as well.
