What I Made – Gold Layered Necklace

Today I spent some time in the workshop with my dad today and I made a couple of pieces that turned out amazing. With a little help from Pop and his new drilling equipment, this necklace was one of the pieces. This was not really supposed to happen honestly. I was planning on making the rectangle boxes into earrings, but after I told my father where to drill, I foolishly told him the wrong side on which to drill so the earrings would have turned out quite lopsided. But it’s okay since I like them better this way.

I used Findings earrings posts and jump rings in gold. The chain is a twisted link chain I got at a garage sale this morning! The chain in between the gold squares are actually small hexagonal beads linked together that I used off of a bracelet. Last but not least, the boxes are from a belt I picked up at the thrift store. They are the little thingy ma-jigs on same side of the belt as the buckle where you tuck the extra belt into! Crafty… right?

  1. Great job! Aren’t garage sales the best for getting chains and findings? Saves me quite a bit of money than buying new! :)

    • I know! Today was our town wide garage sale day so on almost every street there was at least one garage sale! I bought so much stuff I didn’t need, but of course some day I’ll need it. I’m so excited to work with some of the old jewelry I got!

Tell me a little something about what you think!
