Charming Chains

About this design:

These are a variation on the charm necklaces I have done in the past with leather cord. Here I have gathered bits and pieces on long 33-34 inch chains. Advantage is no need for a clasp, as these easily slip over the head. Many of the base metal charms have been altered by either alcohol inks or acrylic paints to add a dash of color to the necklace.

    Too cool. I always want to create something asymmetrical and funky and trendy. But I can never get the right pieces to play well with their other pieces! This is a great set of examples. I’ll try it again… :)
