I decided to make a second one, The Road to Mandalay. This one is a little more in the MAB vein. It's asymmetrical, with three sections of tripled vintage gold chain, a mix of small flat link chain and ball chain with textured stations. The chain is from a Fifties era multi-strand bracelet. This one needed dangles, darlings, dangles! I added two charms from a Fifties charm bracelet, an Egyptian face with a green rhinestone, and an Asian motif charm. Then, I finished it off with a vintage gold box clasp. Every single bit of this is repurposed vintage. It is kind of delicious.
I have some chain with bigger, unusual links. The larger links might be fab for dangling pendants or charms. I'm still mulling over ideas here. I love making something fresh with these little treasures that I've had tucked away for awhile, and trying out new ideas. Not everything has to have a gala of glittering crystals, right? Just most things, like 98% of things.
