This next picture is what I used to design my necklace with. We could add or take away what we wanted to from our own stash. I used everything except the gunmetal toggle, cream satin necklace and the silver chain. The glass heart focal has gold in it, so that is the metal color I designed with. And....wax linen is really hot right now and I just happened to have a nice blue shade that matched the components. It was a fun change from stringing on wire and using crimps. Knots are so much easier!
Don't you just love the jangle spacers? They consist of 3 round circles....you string the middle on your design and wire wrap dangles (or jangles) on the outside 2 circles. I get them from T Beads. They come in all the metal shades. For the 4 jangles, I made 32 wraps of beads and spacers. It takes some time, but the result is worth it! I made some ice blue ceramic round beads to compliment the heart focal. I just can't make jewelry without including some of my handmade ceramic beads. I hope I made Debbie proud, and I can't wait to see what she designs with the soup she received from me!
