Filligree Findings Necklace


About this design:

This is from the stash of brass I received in the mail. This one just built one piece at a time with me having no idea where it was going to end up :) So this is it, also think I might bring this to the store owner to see if she can sell it :)

Components:

brass filligree, chain and findings

    Goes great with the bracelet. Ya know what? With that ring on the bottom of the pendant, you could hang your office tag, key-card, etc. That’s pretty cool.

    Diane Cauley says:

    I love the dark, rough look of this; then when I look more closesly, it is delicate … so beautiful. I love the pendant. How does one get a stash of brass in the mail?

    So very cool, Fave!! I still haven’t forgotten about the bracelet either….I’ve just been broke, for like…forever, lol. At least here the past 8 or 9 months or so, heh.

    This is super great!! I love the chain. Can we see more of it? You get these componets from Lima Beads? The bottom pieces I have seen in silver I think. You turn a spacer on it’s side to come up with the piece for just above the large focal part? What an eye you have for connecting pieces together!! Very creative, amazing no beads. So feminine and antique looking. Love this.

    This is absolutely awesome! It’s so very creative, inventive, and beautiful. Sometimes that “no idea where it will end up” ends up to be very special! :D

    Dragons Chicky says:

    You did a great job of bending the filigree! And you did this without really trying? Geeze, I can’t do as well when I’m concentrating on it! You’re a natural at this! Love it! :D

    Mommykat Bubbly Chick says:

    Wow, this is impressive. when I try to bend filigree it always just ends up looking well, bent! :)
