Summer Jewelry Challenge Project #3

Here it is: my 3rd project from Deryn Mentock's Summer Jewelry Challenge: "Shelf Necklace". I decided to go back to the vintage-y look with this one, and used an old belt link as the base, which I heat colored and then textured. For the beads I took apart a couple of old vintage necklaces and combined those beads with some others I had lying around here and an antique button. The result is a very "girly" piece that makes me smile. :-)

Onward to the next one while I still have a couple of free days before it is mosaic time again!

Hi Molly,

I love your version - it's so frilly, feminine and vintage-y! The scalloped edges of the belt buckle give it a girly look that isn't in Mary's version - you've made this completely your own. Bravo!

I scaled mine up a bit and made a small wall ornament for Ornament Thursday. You can see it here:
It's such a fun project and I love seeing how everyone has interpreted it.

Happy Ornament Thursday!
