Re design Bahia + Tribal
Idea # 1
The top and bottom chains hold it together. Rigid or flexible filaments connect between them, creating textures. There are several ways to construct it. Simple chains and filaments with chain passers at both ends. Or a more elaborate system as presented here.
Idea # 2
Pearl-like necklace with a twist; each stone-carved ball represents an animal's eyes. Tubes have skin textures. You can have a traditional brooch or a removable one that can be used in a variety of ways if you are in the mood for adventure.
