Hi Sweet Friends! Happy Monday, and a very happy 4th of July holiday to my friends and family here in the States!
As many of you know, I have taken on a new hobby of jewelry making this past year, and have been having the most fun playing with the new Tim Holtz Assemblage collection. Today I am excited to share my latest jewelry pieces with you. These are what I’m lovingly referring to as the “extras”, made with the leftovers from my previous projects.
One of my favorite ways to use the Assemblage chain components is to combine bits and pieces of multiple strands to create a varied design. And one of my favorite outcomes of that is having smaller sections of chain leftover for new projects, like the bracelets I am sharing today. This first one is a double-wrap bracelet made with the beautiful pink rosary bead chain, decorated with sparkling accents and charms.
Jewelry projects like these are truly soooooo easy to create. Simply attach a jump ring to one end of chain, and a lobster claw to the other, and then add a few charms in between. I used a mixture of Sparkling Rondelle and Diamonds & Pearls charms along with that adorable wishbone charm. I’m thinking of this one as my Lucky Charm piece.
The second bracelet is done in an oxidized silver finish using extras from the Gunmetal Link chain. I attached a lobster claw and jump ring at the ends again, along with a dangle of extra chain to act as an extender. And then I attached a Diamonds & Pearls charm and another Sparkling Rondelle for a bit of extra detail.
The center of the bracelet is decorated with one of my favorite pieces from the entire collection, the beautiful round shell charm from the Shell Flower & Links charms, which I topped with a Flower Rosette charm via a pair of gunmetal rings. So simple, and just so fun!
Thanks so much for stopping by! Hope you all have a lovely holiday for those celebrating this long weekend. Any special plans in the works?
