ive been away from craftster for what feels like a million years but ive come home to roost! (aka its finals time and im losing my mind). i am obsessed with charm necklaces and made this one in the image of one i met visiting my sister at college upstate (new york). that one was made of small pink pearls, but, well, you get the idea. maybe not. i just love this. excuse the images, but my digital camera committed suicide so i had to just scan it instead. let me know what you think! is this wearable or am i the only person on earth crazy enough to hang this around my neck like a shiny onyx albatross? im too melodramatic. 

xoxo

I love this necklace! I think the big white heart looks a little out of place, though. but it's still beautiful! where do you get all your charms?

IMHO, the white heart is the right scale with the black beads. Gives you the old focal point.

Very clever idea. And the charms set off your charms  Grin

aww, thank you! my charms, eh? very sweet. i kind of like the white heart. i think it makes it kind of chanel-y. which isnt what i was going for but is always a nice afterthought. as for the charms, i get them all over. my parents are jewelers so they go to antique shows, and they have some dealer friends who let me sift through their junk boxes and buy stuff for cheap. that's where the vintage rhinestone pieces are from. the leaf looking one is actually just a broken piece of something bigger. many of the gold and silver looking ones are just from bead stores around manhattan. i just kind of collect stuff and put it all together when im saturated, then just go out and start looking for more. im glad you like it, though, and thanks for the constructive criticism.
