Type of item: Accessory
chain, beads, charm, head pins, eye pins, french hooks, lobster clasp, jump rings.
What was your inspiration?
Mom's birthday. Tried to match colors she had the most of in her closet. Failed miserably, but she says it's an excuse to go shopping. :) There is a bracelet too, but since I didn't actually make that, I didn't post it.
What are you most proud of?
The chain. I like the intermittent beaded effect - my new favorite thing!
What advice would you give someone starting this project?
Colored chain - anything other than silver, gold or brass - is pretty much painted. Too much messing with the metal tools with peel the paint. Handle gently!
