Some people might find it surprising, but I actually really hate wearing necklaces despite the numbers of necklaces I make. I just hate the feeling of something hard constantly on the nape of my neck. Short and heavy necklaces such as heavy pearl strands are especially problematic for me. I decided to put each end of the necklace on a brooch and pin the two brooches to my lapel. This way nothing will touch the back of my neck.
