This necklace incorporates a "yoke" component that is 1/2 of a diamond and the other 1/2 is replaced with a spiral.  Since I don't have a better name for the necklace, it will be the Spiral-Diamond necklace.  It could have been the Inverted Christmas tree necklace, but this didn't sound too good either.  While we don't have a great sounding name for the necklace, the design is a very nice combination of jewelry wire and beads and the resulting necklace should attract attention.  This is an advanced beginners jewelry making project.
