I am still in my bubble, and it is working. Although, I do have a bit of a scratchy throat. ugh. Anywho... I thought you'd like to see one of the new designs to make it out of my studio this week. This one was for a book I am contributing on. However, it didn't fit with the book's theme so it won't be heading to it's pages. That's okay by me... it means I don't have to keep it a secret and I can share it with you!!
I am calling it "Frivolous". It is fun, fringy, floppy fantasticness if you ask me. LOL, but then again, I am in a bubble!! LOL! I could be totally off base. I know this fringy style chain is really "in" right now. And it is actually quite easy to make yourself. No need to be paying $19-$30 a foot for it. MAKE IT! (hmm... maybe I should write this tutorial)
The beads are recycled in from another necklace. Remember this one? I was never really happy with it, and it hasn't ever sold. I cut it to bits, I'll reuse the wire in bottle caps, and the beads are now much happier in this new home. I like the way that they fall from side to side as you wear it. They move but are trapped in place by the rings.
Since making this, I have all sorts ideas for what to do with this fringy style stuff. I already have earrings done... and I am thinking bracelets too. Oh, and another necklace (or two) at least. Before I go head long into this world of shaggy cha cha ness... give me some feedback. I would love to hear what you think.
