2. Cut the piece approximately 5/8 longer than needed, that extra length will make the loop that your leather rope will go through to hang the pendant when finished. Now grind that extra length to an even thickness, approximately 1/16 thick, so it will bend easily to form the loop. If it is too wide you can grind some off of the width before you bend the loop. With a fine file, smooth the edges of the ground metal so that it will not mar the leather and will slide easily on the cord.
Try not to mix styles. A modern silver cuff won't look right paired with antique gold filigree earrings. Stick with a matching bracelet and earring set or two similar necklaces also looks great. Until recently, it was taboo to mix metals. This was one of those old-school rules that most designers now ignore. The trick is if you want to mix metals, keep the style of jewelry the same. A simple hammered chain necklace of silver and gold, or silver and copper links looks absolutely stunning and is very fashion-forward. Stacking rings or bracelets also lends perfectly to the mixing of metals. You can even stack square or round rings or bangles in different shades of gold, silver or copper.
Tribal inspired jewelry available now tries to mimic the same crudeness as was seen in tribal jewelry; and the best part is, it is not just for the fairer sex - even men can wear tribal jewelry. There is also a growing curiosity about the different significance of tribal jewelry, especially the spiritual meanings.
