Whew!! All done.
Took 3 days on and off to make two necklaces with watchfaces and metal butterflies. I am only showing you this one, Pink Hot, since I need to retake the photos on the other one.
I started off with this silver metal butterfly. I wanted it to be the focal point. I added one of my recycled watchfaces in black. Then I weaved through the butterfly a ball and chain to hang the brass bell. Used gold plated chain links, oval shaped. To balance the left side, I added a couple of black 11/0 seedbead loops and dangled 2 tiny keys.
For the peyote tubes, I made two of each color. Gunmetal gray, hot pink and black. Used 8/0 Dyna-mites from Fire Mountain Gem and Beads. (14 seedbeads across/9 rows) The tubes slide over the chain. Can be grouped together or spaced further apart.
I will probably list this necklace at Etsy. Here are my Etsy-ready photos.
Necklace measures 22″.
