When I saw the anthropologie statement necklace swap i thought it was a cook idea, but i'm trying to save money and not do as many swaps. additionally, I'm trying to work as much as I can from stash.

The inspiration necklace was the collage charm necklace here: http://www.anthropologie.com/anthro/catalog/productdetail.jsp?id=20020442&catId=JEWELRY-NECKLACES-STATEMENTS&pushId=JEWELRY-NECKLACES-STATEMENTS&popId=JEWELRY-NECKLACES&navAction=middle&navCount=90&color=000&isProduct=true&fromCategoryPage=true&templateTy

So I dug through my jewelry stash and pulled out some chain from a broken necklace or two, a couple of packages of jump rings my mom left here and a whole bunch of beads, charms and doodads that hold some meaning for me and this is the results:


I used earring I had from childhood, lampwork beads from my first lampworking class, buttons from my grand mom's stash, pendants from old necklaces that I loved.  Everything from E.T., to belly dance coins, to elephant rides are represented.  I still need to solder the jump rings so they won't fall apart and my fingers still hurt from trying to position the jump rings, but I really like how it turned out.

A couple of obligatory detail shots:
