Chain jewelry

The last post showed a selection of layered neck chains. The effect in that instance is very Chanel.
In the picture you can see how widely chain can vary. From the metal used, to the shape of the links as well as size and weight.
I manage to find chain in the hardware stores and in haberdasheries.

However our bead merchant is my biggest source. You can see coins attached to the chain at the bottom of the picture. I even manage to intersperse beads into chains. You could mix and match varying lengths of chain for effect.

The Greenie Galleries at the top of this page have 100s of photos of older and newer projects showing multiple ways to make your own clothing and accessories. There are also ideas to recycle or upcycle.

See you soon.
