Shabby Chic Locket and Gem Necklace

Not sure why but I've been in sort of a bloggy slump lately ~ hopefully this creation will snap me out of it!  If you've made any charm necklaces you love let me know here and I'll share them with my readers.  It's much more interesting when they get to see a variety of styles and not just my jewelry designs:)! 


I actually took apart another necklace I had made and took the pearls off of it to make this one ~ sometimes the necklace design in my head is a lot better than the actual necklace that I make, SOOOooo back to the drawing board!

This necklace design came to me rather quickly.  That happens when I throw together baubles that I love.  And I love ALL this stuff ~ antique brass lockets, pearls, semi-precious glass rondelle gems, Swarovski crystals, gunmetal chain and funky toggles.  Don't you just love this clasp?


 

I'm still interested in hearing about any great flea market and/or tag sale finds!  Spring is one of the best times for raking in the goods ~ one man's trash is another man's treasure, right?  TTFN
