Backwards, so that the dangles hang behind you. Very cool if you have a low cut shirt in the back, or a boat neck.
The original idea was to have a necklace that had dangles. I have a sketch of my idea, and I was all set to make it, until the clasp I had in mind went AWOL. Instead I used a sterling silver ring (that used to be a clasp, but broke) and worked with what I had. Goofing off with my finished project, we (Jay and I) saw that it looked cool two other ways also. My next project is to dig for that clasp, and do another necklace.
