This very long (40″) necklace proved to dramatic for me today. I ended up doubling the chain, knotting it and looping it around my neck.

Super long is interesting, but not practical.

This old, old, old necklace has a mix of glass beads and pretty, lacey filigree. I haven’t worn it in years and forgot how much I liked it.

This necklace was created by threading head pins through beads and chain to create a fringe. It’s an interesting idea and I think I am going to explore it a bit more. This version, with pretty abalone and too-bright red Czech crystals isn’t a winner for me. The idea, though, I like that…

(I have no idea when this necklace was made…I’ve had it for years, but I don’t remember it at all…hmm.)

Totally out-of-focus pictures. There is a strong possibility my iphone is dying…or in some state of photographic rebellion.

Another vintage buckle choker.

This one is the original. I found all those buckles in an old button box I inherited  and the beads are from a broken 1920’s Flapper-length necklace that I took apart.

Copper jump rings with a natural patina, copper chain and hook, too.
