Chain Linkies

Today's post showcases the last of the cool Jill MacKay pieces I recently found in the online catalog at ConsumerCrafts.com. I haven't even looked through all the art and craft supplies yet, I have a serious thing for glitter and mod podge!!

These "sterling plated linkies" are made with 3 lengths of chain hooked together at each end by a large jump ring. My first thought is to use them in a bracelet design, one on top of the wrist and one underneath with bursts of beads at the connecting points.

However, I was also thinking you could "stack" them at different heights as the focal piece in a necklace. It might be interesting to weave colored cording throughout some of the chain and add one large focal pendant hanging from a 3rd cord.

I love all the cool ideas people have shared over the last week for using these Jill MacKay pieces...very creative!! Now I've gotta run and get my beads out!

Have a good one! (Check out this post for the free shipping info through 9/1/09)

Interesting...you are right there are many ways to use these! I'm not sure how long they are but earrings might also be an option...

Cheers
