Hot Pepper Sunshine

I am going to blame the lateness of this post on tonight's drive-in excursion. It was Alvin & the Chipmunks "the squeakuel" and Clash of the Titans.

It never really matters whether we like the movies all that much, we go for the fun and atmosphere! :)

Rather than a complete project, I am posting the initial IDEA for a project until I can come to some final decision. I love the idea of using these red chilli peppers as rays of the sun in some kind of jewelry piece.

They are rather large which will certainly make a statement, but are they too large? Other questions that come to mind are: can you wear this as a bracelet?

Is it more fun than practical? Can it be used as a pendant in a necklace?

So, if you have thoughts on this design "conundrum", please send them my way!!

How about using memory wire in the necklace diameter size and let the peppers sit around it? This would also look like rays. And you have no problem with the size of them.
