Pave' Challenge Complete!

I can't believe it -- three days and I've completed my first jewelry design challenge.  I have to admit that I was REALLY impatient to see what I would come up with...I pictured a totally different necklace but my muse came up with something else.



I guess my love of vintage-inspired jewelry is apparent here.  It's funny because the design came together in about 15 minutes while I perused a jewelry supply store's wares today.  I picked up two antique brass chains  (one with metal ball charms) and fused them together to make the final product.  I then added the four infamous pave' charms and the piece de resistance -- a double-jeweled charm hanging in the center of it all.  I made it about 26'' so that it can be worn long but it can also be clasped for a shorter length as well.

I even picked up the last four pave' charms they had so that I can create another necklace with them.  At least that's the plan, anyway.  I had to laugh, though, as my five-year-old son saw the necklace and said, "They look like disco balls, Mommy."  And he was right. 

Hope you like the necklace.  Let me know what you think.  Ciao for now.
