Hello, I hope you are all having a Great weekend! This week's projects were made using the hammered chain I received from Rings & Things last Friday. Surprisingly, both of these projects include black hemp cord. I think I was sort of hooked on it today! The color went so nicely with these hammered links, I just couldn't stop myself!
Once I began wrapping the pearls inside the hammered chain links, I thought they would be nice as more of a focal piece in a bracelet so I just used 3 of them macrame'd together. I enjoy macrame and love to include crystals when using thin hemp cord, so I added some swarovski bicones (and a bunch of dangles!)
The large barrel-shaped crystals in the 2nd design to the right were taken from a vintage jewelry piece. It's always so much fun to find perfect uses for those kind of beads!! As I mentioned above, black hemp cord is the stringing material on both of these pieces.
I sure had a lot of fun working on these today and wish I had 48 hours to play instead of 24!! Have a crafty weekend!!
