Linking links

17 Aug

Some times ago I bought these glass beads with the idea to make a long necklace. As I saw them I thought that they were born to feature in a necklace with a loose pattern.

Almost at the same time, I decided to take part of Peggy Johnson‘s Link Challenge.

I was so happy when the links finally arrived because 1. they were beautiful and 2. I could use them along with the glass beads to make my necklace (I am a procrastinator, and by the time the packet from Peggy landed in my mail box, I hadn’t yet started to work on my necklace…).

So, I had my idea, my beads, my links, my wire and my holidays to enjoy.

I really didn’t need anything else to realx and work on my project.

Check out Peggy’s blog post for the complete list of all partecipants and vote for your favourite creation!

    This worked up beautifully!! I love what you did with the links and the beads. They were made for each other. Great job and I am in love with long necklaces right now.

    This reminds me of carmel candies. It looks all creamy and yummy. Very nice use of the links!

    Love the color and contrast the materials and beads lend to one another. I am big on asymmetrical pieces – lovely

      Thanks Jamie! I am starting loving asymmetrical pieces too.

    Very nice. Loved the combination of glass and plastic Sort of chunky and streamlined at the same time.

      Thank you Beti. Sometimes chunky is good! 🙂

    I normally am not one to be drawn to big chunky necklaces but you really did a great job on this. I love the color choice and balance of size in the other stones. Well done.

    Beautifully assembled…the color and scale of the beads works wonderfully with the links.

      Thank you Terri! Big links call for big beads!

    Very nice. I like the looseness of it and the mixture of the links and the beads. Congrats on getting your loose bead necklace done (even if you did procrastinate) 🙂

      Thank you Kay! I shuold really work on my procrastination issue though… I finished the necklace just in time to send Peggy the pictures…

    ooh! That’s lightened the colours up so much! Amazing how different materials make the links have a different feel to them 🙂

    • chicandfrog August 17, 2012 at 20:36 #

      I just wanted something bright and with a summer vibe!

    I love this necklace so much I voted for it 🙂 It is just soothing to me when I look at it.

    Beautiful! I really love the beads that you used with the links. I swear I thought they were wood at first sight. Thanks for being part of the challenge!
