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.

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