an engineering mind bend

'flight from paradise', the necklace pictured below, in my discovery of 'dodge and burn' post, was a real learning curve. not because of the clay, but because after i had assembled the necklace, i realized that my vision had some practical drawbacks.  hmmmmm.......   i wanted a parrot in flight placed off center on the front of the necklace. when i had it made, i realized that it wouldn't sit right on the wearer.  it wanted to slip off kilter.  well,  nobody told me to plan ahead.   so..... regrouping,  i set about figuring how to counterbalance it.
