After Midnight

by: Dwyn Tomlinson

Whether you go walking after midnight - or just let it all hang down - this leafy, dark and mysterious set will be the perfect accessory.

The necklace is 3 strands of leafy chain, with matte black chain at the side and back, because I found the leafy chain a little scratchy on my neck.

The ear wires are actually sterling, as we don't have black ear wires. They've been hanging around waiting for me to use them for so long that they have tarnished and actually go surprisingly well with the black theme. I suppose I could have used gunmetal ear wires  - you might want to do that instead. ;-)

The Swarovski Black Pearls are wired onto the 3 leafy chain strands, pretty much in random order. They are more or less 2-3 finger widths apart. I used fine headpins and wrapped loops to attach them.

A smaller jumpring is required to attach the lobster claw clasp, as the hole in the clasp is not very large. The three strands are attached to the big chain with a single jumpring, and there is another at the other end for the clasp to hook into.

The earrings are about an inch of chain - 7 loops actually - and 3 pearls on the bottom (wrapped loops), on a jumpring.
