Here are three new necklaces I've made using soft, thin black suede.

all three of the designs feature vintage chains - I grommeted the suede patterns that I cut so that the jumprings could be added without tearing or pulling the delicate suede.

I'm off to make more...


I like using the thin suede because it sits so delicately on the skin and it looks quite sexy...

Wow- these are so inventive! I would never have thought to use the suede this way. Great job!

Oooooo!!!!  Different . . . and SO COOL!!  I really LOVE how you are featuring your "thin suede designs" using VINTAGE chains.  GREAT IDEA!

BTW:  Do you know if suede can be embossed?  Or decorated some other way via a little stitching or paint (or stamping)?  Just a thought for another necklace project you might like to try. 

Eat, Drink, and Be Merry!!!

i actually attempted stitching the suede but because it's so thin and difficult to both keep taut and secure the thread without pulling it - i ended up abandoning the idea.
I also thought of thread design with an adhesive felt backing (so the thread wouldn't get messed up when it's worn) but so far...no luck...
i'll post any if i finally achieve the effect i'm desiring.
thanks for the suggestions!
