I didn't use ANY polymer clay in this challenge!
Here is a picture of what I was sent.
Beads, black beads, small black beads, even smaller black beads, LOTS of black beads!
I had received a large spool of link chain in a destash sale on Creative Bead Chat from Melinda Orr, and decided this would be the perfect time to pull it out. (Good thing I had heavy duty clippers). After cutting the appropriate size lengths of chain I pulled Jeannie's necklace apart and started wiring 2 beads at a time to each link of the chain.
In another destash sale, this time Bead Swap USA, I had received a beautiful batch of Sari Silks from Kelli Nelson and decided to use two of them in red and gold as highlights along the length of the necklace, and to which I wired some of the smaller black beads, for interest.
Finally I added some antique gold and copper double links as spacers, and a 30mm brass lobster claw clasp, also from Melinda to finish it off.
OK, that is for the casual wear, now on to something a little dressier. I had this length of copper looped wire chainmaille in my stash and decided it would work well with my idea.
I wired increasing numbers of Jeannie's beads and added copper tipped black crystal dangle to the ends of each. These went on the connecting links of the chain. In between each graduated strand I added another of the black beads and a black bicone crystal to the middle of the wired loops.
One more destash item, from Gail Hughes, came the free form copper wires which I modified slightly and used to link the central portion to an oval link copper chain.
Love the delicate way it drapes when wearing it!
Time to see the other creative Do-Over's in this Challenge.
