Lucky me found a huge bag of chandelier crystals at a thrift store a while back, so when I saw one like this on spidermom's wists I knew I had to make her one for a recent swap!



It was a fun project, and I used some cool ephemera given to me by the one and only calluna! The chain is brass.

I'll have to make more since I have so many of the crystals. Thanks for looking!

The vintage picture goes well with the chandelier glass

I agree with that completely.  And I'm glad that the chain is brass with a kind of muted luster.  How did you adhere the image to the crystal, if I may ask?   It's a very cool necklace.

Thank you both! I mod-podged the front of the image and stuck it to the bead. Then I smoothed it out a bit to get rid of wrinkles. Then I added a few coats of non-sticky acrylic varnish to the back.
