Miscellaneous Monday...DIY Necklaces!


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.

What kind of hobbies are you into?
