Double Strand Hammered Metal Connector Necklace

Blue Grey Metals

So apparently I really have lost my mind because I had this ready to post in DECEMBER and thought I had. That’s the sound of my palm hitting my head.

I made this necklace ( shown here doubled) with Blue Moon Beads and Bead Landing chain. The lightbulb went off yesterday when I was wearing it and someone asked me if I made it. That made me start thinking about when I made it and I realized I never posted it!

Whenever I’m making jewelry, I gather up what I think I’m going to use so here are the things I started with. The blue grey beads came in a pack of 23 coordinating pieces as shown on the card.

I cut different lengths of chain and made varying sections of beads and then randomly put them together with jump rings and hammered silver connectors:

I made it really long so I could either wear it that way or double it. It’s hard to get a good photograph of it the long way but I’ve mostly worn it doubled anyway.

A mind is a terrible thing to lose!

Don't worry honey, we all have those days. I have "scheduled" so many posts, only to come back and think "What the crap?!" LOL

Beautiful necklace, you've clearly found your talent.

Beautiful! I love those rhinestone beads and spacers. I think I've lost my mind too because I can't remember where I put some of those beads I just bought.

We obviously create in the same way - with a big pile of 'stuff I might use' in front of us! Love the multi-chain - looking good!

Way cool. I've never attempted making jewelry. Probably afraid of the start up costs.

As Lindalou commented above, I'm a little skittish about the start up costs. It is quite beautiful.
