Bead Soup project #1 This necklace was made using vintage cuckoo clock chain. The kind that hangs down from the clock with weights at each end. I used the focal sent by my Bead Soup partner, as well was the round metal disks. I used the disks to turn the focal from a pin to a necklace focal. I broke off the pin back, domed one of the disk and glued it to the back. Then I used two other disks to form the area to hang from the chain. The dark beads and crystals are also from my partner. I made another necklace using the clasp and some more beads. Click on the header "Every Good and Perfect Gift" to go to my main page and see the other project.....

  14. I like the asymmetry of the second piece. Is it comfortable to wear? Or does it twist around? It has nice flow.

    1. It does lay well and does not twist. I think that second level of chain takes care of that problem :) Thanks for the kinds words.
