Rambling Rose Necklace

Designer: Michelle Mach
Published: March 3, 2008
Technique: Stringing, Wirework

It’s dangerous to be in the middle of another beading project when you get a challenge kit! I learned this the hard way: I set the box clasp from the kit next to some chain maille earrings I was creating as a gift for a friend. Good-bye earrings, hello necklace! I decided to use the clasp as a pendant and turned five more Japanese lattice “earrings” into connectors. I finished the necklace with a handful of beads from the kit, plus some crystal links and an s-hook clasp from my stash. The result is a free-spirited necklace perfect for spring.
