So here is a chain I made for my friend who has lost three pairs of glasses in six months...

With flash:


And without:



And then there is this necklace I made from seed beads and pearls I cannibalized from a bracelet:



I don't like the way it kinks a little bit at the top of the outside chains of pearls. Anyone have suggestions how to fix that without altering the distance between the pearls?

ok well I think if you move the 2 chains that you are talking about outward by 1-2 seed beads it will help. Plus how the chains will fall won't change the distance because they are doing that because of how the necklace does that dip.

So although it may seem to be changing the distance, when worn it will appear even.

you could try a slightly shorter necklace - take 3-8 beads off either end?

p.s.  good morning, sunshine!  Grin
