Well, this is my take on those charm necklaces that are everywhere (here in NZ at least). They are usually a bunch of nicknacks and doodaddys strung onto a chain, maybe with a theme.
I have a catchall bag, with lots of charms and beads gathered from so many different sources.
On this necklace is...

-A silver heart outline with little faux diamonds in it. I found it on the ground somewhere ages ago. THis is showing the wrong side.
-Big red oval sequin. The light in my lounge makes it look a dull shade of pooey brown, but it is very bright and shiny.
-A little silver heart with yet another faux diamond in the centre. You can't see it very well, but there isn't that much to see. It came free on the chain with Girlfriend magazine.
-A weird crowny one that my awesome science teacher Mr. Phillip gave me. It was sitting on his desk today, and i said "that's pretty," and he said "have it."
So I did.
And that was that.
-Woody one. Hard to see, but it has a rose engraved on the side you can't see, and the word "love".
-Silver locket. I paid a whole $1 for it.

When it is worn, all the charms hang at different levels, as I attatched wood, Mr Phillip and sequin to a loop with knots at intervals, made from clear fishing wirey stuff.
Do comment, 'twas quick but easy, and I have many a charm left in my catchall to make a few more.

even if it does need moving, it's very cool. it looks vintage or something. your mr phillips sounds a lot nicer than the mr phillips at my school, but the i only don't like him coz he's stopped me doind textiles next year coz he doesn't like me Sad

That looks SO awesome! It is so cute and I absolutely adore all the little trinkets you hooked onto it! Good job? How'd you do it?

How'd you do it?
I just threaded some charms onto an old necklace chain, and then made a little loop from clear thread and put some of the charms on that (to make it hang at different levels).
Thanks guys.
