Yesterday I found a load of scrap wire, leftovers that were too big to just throw away, and I made a necklace out of it.
It's a very delicate necklace, for those who like their jewelry tiny but full of personality.

I remember a friend of mine wearing a necklace like this. She loved it, but it had cost her about $100. Well, this one's made out of scraps. Silver plated scrap wires, of course, not genuine silver, but nevertheless, I love this piece! Wink

What a great idea! I never would have thought this was scraps!

How wonderful! Love that it is both delicately pretty and totally funky at the same time.

I keep hoarding silver wire scraps, because it's just so damn expensive, and only rarely use them for swirls or whatever. But I'll have to try something like this.

In the end, only kindness matters.

I think it looks pretty, elegant. And to think that someone pay $100 for this Shocked
