I don't have any necklaces in this lariat style and thought it looked like it had great potential. While it's cute, the problem with this particular necklace is that when it's on, it looks like it's twisted. Understand? It looks like the pendant has just wound itself up the necklace. I pictured people coming up to me and "untwisting" my necklace (well, you know, back when people came close to me).
