  4. I adore long opera chains and ropes. I like to wear three or four very thin necklaces all layered together.

    Those "how to wear" articles are great. Now I have a few new ideas, too!

  5. Long necklaces look great...but unfortunately people who buy them dont realise the extra time that goes into making it so very long and hence they become relatively expensive compared to short ones..I hope that changes very soon

  6. Layering is an excellent idea. I agree people don't realize the extra work and cost to a long necklace.

  7. Long, really long necklaces can be worn in so many different ways. I've always liked their versatility but I too have had trouble selling very long necklaces as people can't understand why they would be much more expensive than a standard one strand design.
