Jagged Cliffs

This is my second submission to the February ABS blog challenge.  It was a very inspiring piece.

The focal/charm is from Dream Catchers in Galena, Illinois.  The inspiration piece had what I would call "jagged cliffs."

I thought that the wavy wirework would replicate that.
The intricate Celtic design kept the theme going.
I decided to try a new clasp design.  It took some time to perfect the piece but I think that clasp turned out nice.
