For today's Miscellaneous Monday post, I'm featuring a few more necklaces that I've made.
I kept this one pretty simple - no end-of-chain decoration.
Necklace pendant bought on clearance summer 2011 from Walmart.
I think the chain was a clearance find, too.
This copper sunflower (?) pendant also came from Walmart, most likely on clearance, in 2011.
I added the purple bead hanging in the center, as well as a coordinating end-of-chain decoration using a larger faceted bead and some seed beads in the same lilac/lavender purple.
I really like the way that this one came out.
This necklace is simply composed of a chain and fancy pendant with black beads suspended from the gunmetal piece. Once again, this pendant was purchased summer 2011 on clearance.
It was actually a little more challenging since I had to get 2 pieces of chain exactly the same so the pendant would hang level.
I find that making all of these necklaces, earrings, and bracelets are both challenging and rewarding. I definitely enjoy myself while making pieces and completely lose track of time (until my legs fall asleep and my back hurts so much that I can barely move). In the recent days, I've been trying to branch out a little and incorporate some ideas that I've seen at stores to make my pieces more interesting and beautiful.
