Creating this necklace was surprisingly easy.
I had a small package of Swarovski crystals, as well as copious amounts of jump rings. Way too many jump rings. Jump rings coming out of my ears. I really need to stop buying jump rings.
I like using round nose pliers when working with aluminum wire because it dents so easily, but I also used plain pliers for attaching the jump rings.
Attaching the jump rings was easy, and to that I looped some eye pins on which I strung the Swarovski crystals. Necklace chain is easily found at department stores, craft stores, my basement, or repurposed from an existing necklace you aren't crazy about. I personally like that last option - it saves me from accumulating too much jewelry.
The final product was everything I hoped for and more. A fabulous present for someone? Perhaps I should make a matching set for my fabulous future Bridesmaids? And - when I get over this overwhelmingly loving mood, I really must make that Hello necklace.
