Ball bearings that is.....

The ball bearings are about 12 mm before adding beads.  This is a more open weave than the others I have seen lately.  I wanted the silver balls to show thru.

I connected them with split rings.

This one I added small dangles on the empty rings.  This has alot of movement with the weight of the balls, the dangles just go here and there.  Do ya think the dangles are too much?  Not sure about this one.....

Oooh! I love the beaded ball bearings. What a brilliant idea. Did you follow a tute or figure it out yourself?

The danglies are cute, but the first version is more my personal style.... well except that I LOVE jewelry that encourages fidgeting Smiley Hmmm, now I don't know which I like better.

Thanks bunches Cayca, Kaleesi and rbeforee!!  Grin

rbeforee-this I figured out myself few years ago.  I used to make zipper pulls on lanyard hooks with them, they also make cool pull cords for ceiling fans and such.  I never never throw away a ball of any kind.  These ball bearings were from the recalled magnetic children's toys.  Marbles of all sizes look too cool hanging around the house!!  Cool

LOVE the "heavy metal"! I like both necklaces equally; I just think they are different styles. The dangles are in good proportion to the balls, which makes them great additions...
Great job! Smiley
