Charms and Chain

I use a lot of chain and I end up with so many little bits and pieces which, by themselves, aren’t long enough for a bracelet.  For this necklace, I used doubled pieces of fine linked chain and single segments of heavy chain and connected them with tiny balled end pieces of silver wire.  A simple toggle clasp completes the chain.  This makes a very textural and unique necklace and goes well with this charm cluster I’ve added.  The  fine silver metal clay  heart is the focal piece.  It’s surrounded by a dangling pearl, crystal, stone, bronze jack, and a polymer clay filled bezel.   People always want to look at all the little elements that comprise the charm cluster.  It never fails to receive a compliment or two!
