Anthropologie Inspired Necklaces: Akela

I'm a sucker for Anthropologie designs, but sadly there are several problems with this: first of all, their products are light-years out of my budget, and second, although I may like a design, there is usually something about it that I would like to do differently--basically, I like the concepts behind their designs, but things like color or coverage don't always work with my personal style. After following Anthro-Necklace week over at Flamingo Toes (LOVED it!), I was finally inspired to take these designs and try them myself--so far, I have conquered my two favorite designs, the Momentary Flutter Necklace and the Akela necklace.

Here are my first two versions of the Akela Necklace, a black and white necklace (black and white is my absolute favorite color combo, if you haven't noticed):
