I got my awesome necklace from yardenxanthe on Monday and I love it!!  It is amazing and looks so cool on, I can't even tell you!  What do you think!?





And she sent me some thumb tacks she made....funny thing is she has no idea that I literally just pulled out my cork board and was gonna hang it up this week by my computer to start keeping track of my swap information/schedule/etc.  Hilarious!  What a coincidence!  There are on my cork board now and they look AMAZING!  Thanks yardenxanthe!!!!

Oh man, I do really like the chain idea.  Now I'm rethinking, but That'sWhatSheSaid said she liked mine, so hopefully that's the truth!  Do you have the story behind the charms, yardenxanthe?

She did send me a photo of the necklace that was numbered and told me the story behind all the charms.  I am sure I can share it.  I will pull the paper out today and type it all up!

Oh! I didn't even know you got it. Somehow I missed the fact that it arrived!! I'm glad you liked it! I thought it turned out so cool!

Here's the info!



I got a lot of this stuff at Katherine's house when I was doing a zine reading at the library with a make and take craft project. I made packets of random goodies to glue to magnets, thumbtacks, and pin backs. So the project is long over, and I still have a decent amount of random (mostly broken) jewelry.

What's Katherine's house? Katherine is a friend of mine who collects bins of jewelry from Goodwill and separates, cleans, and matches it all up. This is her hobby and she loves to do it. Her house is FULL of jewelry, and she sells earrings for $1 a pair, so I've gone over to her house a few times and purchased stuff, either for projects, or just to wear. A lot of the components of this necklace were gotten from trips to Katherine's.

1. The star is from some 80s-looking star earrings. I used it for a link in the necklace, repeated two or three other spots on the necklace (near #10 and past #16). The bead cluster was found in my mom's bead box. I had attached it to a stitch marker, but I removed it to use for this project.

2. The apple is from a necklace I got for my bday from Erika from Texas Haute Sauce. It broke, so I cannibalized it for this project.

3. The green bead cluster is from a necklace I got from Robotpop.etsy.com.

4. Wrapped pearl is from some earrings I got from Katherine's. Net-covered pearl (on #11) is from same pair, and little pearls on #7 and #15 are also.

5. A rhinestone button I wired to a jumpring so it would face forward (not down)

6. Black charm from a pair of (vintage?) earrings from Katherine's.

7. Pearl, from #4 earrings. Wooden glittery heart I wired to a link, also from Katherine's. Gold diamondy-shaped thing from Katherine's, too. I added the other one on the opposite side (#11) to keep the feel of the necklace symmetrical.

8. I love this one! Rhinestone cluster from a vintage clip-on earring. I wired it to an oval-shaped chain loop - I think it's cool!

9. From a pair of earrings, also from Katherine's. The red bead is from the necklace mentioned in #2. The button is combined with a small piece of these cool art deco earrings I got (yep, at Katherine's... I'm telling you, her house is amazing!)

10. Another star link (#1) and a bead cluster from same necklace as #3

11. Other half of diamondy earrings in #7, pearl/net bead from #4 earrings. Random gold/pearl at the top is from Katherine's.

12. Cool telephone from a pair of clip-ons from Katherine's.

13. Green freshwater pearl from same necklace as #2.

14. Petit point from a pair of clip on earrings - I bent it when trying to remove the pokey part that was sticking out of the back of it! Oops! I still like it, so I used it.

15. A button + pearl combo. Simple, but I like the look!

16. The butterfly is from a barrette I got in the late 90s that never quite worked for me, 'cause it closed in the opposite direction I part my hair in = it would always be upside-down the way I would naturally use it!
