Going in Circles?
I had a completely different plan when I sat down to make a bracelet over the weekend. My intentions were centered around a careful selection of favorite beads, buttons and small mementos to hang on some new vintage wash chain that just arrived. But as I arranged and rearranged I found myself less and less satisfied with the design.
On my very messy beading table were many rings and flat circular pieces – parts scattered about. I started to add these to the bracelet and found myself enjoying the whimsical theme of this process more than the previous.
The links of this silver wash vintage chain open, which lends itself to even more possibilities. I used the open links as jumprings to add more length. Plus it added contrast to the circular theme. The chain is brass base, washed in a vintage silver plate. It holds a lot of weight so you can load up all your favorite beads and charms. Plus it has a great spiral texture that looks great antiqued!
More to come,
