Necklaces galore!

Sadly, I do not have any knitting pictures to show. The new job is currently taking up all my cerebral capacities, and there's nothing left over for things like lace knitting (mom's birthday Lotus Blossom shawl) or designing (the lovely Soy Silk Phoenix will become a bolero one day!). Even twisting cables on the Mimosa sock is too much for me. Knitting a sleeve in K3 P2 ribbing is about all I can manage.
But! I have finally received my birthday gift: my mom got me a gift certificate at Small Things Designs, which I spotted a couple of years ago and have been drooling at ever since. Theresa Robinson custom-makes all the jewelry on her site: you pick the shape and the color, and 3-4 weeks later, voila! Here's my *two* necklaces.
First up, from the Originals Collection, I chose the asymmetrical necklace with a swallow, in red:
Originals-Asymmetrical Necklace-Swallow-Red
The red underlay is glass. Want to see the back?

Next, from the Modern Goods collection, I have the Double Strand necklace, with the "stone" cutout, in white:
Modern Goods-Double Strand Necklace-Stones-White
And the back:

This necklace has an interesting clasp; you slide the thin metal rod on the left into the hollow cylinder on the right. It's a very snug fit. (Sorry, I did not intend to sound so dirty).
