I finished my focal, but didn't have anything to hang it on, so went looking for chain-spiration! I knew I wanted to create something from scratch, but wasn't sure where I wanted to start. Wait, right here at AJE!
|Keirsten Giles created gorgeous copper chain and shows us how here!|
|Fun byzantine links by Diana Ptazynski!|
|Chain from Francesca' s COM creation!|
Francesca did a gorgeous chain using Cindy Wimmer's amazing book The Missing Link...I fell in love with how the chain really completed her design, and thought.."hey I have Cindy's book, I wonder what I can come up with! After perusing the wonderful options, I chose this one...Little Orbits.
Here's how I started...
...and here is where I am now...obviously not finished! Need to patina, tumble and most importantly, create a clasp.
As you can see, I wrapped my 'orbit rings' with twisted wire with the ends torched into a ball. I think it really complements the holes and dots in the pendant. Will show you a photo once the whole piece is complete!
Thanks for stopping by! Go create something!
