Blue Moon Beads Urban Warrior Chain and Pearl Necklace

Urban Warrior Pearls and Pendants

Blue Moon Beads has a line that was made just for me! It’s called “Urban Warrior” and while I’m a suburbanite and definitely not warrior like, the pieces this line includes are 100% me. Bold metals in antiqued gold, silver, and copper. Chunky chains and funky elements. Very Industrial Chic. Just stole my heart. I’m sharing my latest design team project made using this line.

Blue Moon Antique Gold

These are some of the supplies I used. You can find the Urban Warrior line and other BMB supplies at JoAnn's.

I don’t have pierced ears but when I looked at the ear wires I decided I could easily straighten them out and use them as eye pins. So I did. As much in love as I am with the metal pieces, I used light bronze glass pearls to contrast the industrial look with a completely opposite effect.

I used my straightened ear wires turned eye pins to string the pearls, and attached gold and metal pendant pieces  to heavy gold chain with silver jump rings.

Urban Warrior Metal Teardrop

I attached the chain to a multi strand waxed cotton thread necklace with large connector rings.

Cool! I love that line, and you did a great job on this design. Now I have a new use for all my ear wires from when I thought I would make and sell earrings!
