Quick but fun freeform necklace

I had fun making this. I kept seeing really interesting freeform crochet necklaces on Flickr and just decided to give it a try. Now I'm already plotting colors and shapes for the next one... isn't that how it always goes? The center button is an antique boot button that a friend passed along to me. Here's how the necklace looks unfastened (awkward photo--hard to pose for the webcam and click "snapshot" at the same time):
The pink and black center element is on one side, the button and gold frill are on the other.

UPDATE 4/30: I went and made another one, in blue and turquoise. And I'm working on a third that's black, red, grey, and silver. I think I've found another pleasant addiction. ;)
