Hammered Shine

by: Anne Marie Desaulniers

I should actually call this necklace
 "What If?", because it's the end result of asking myself a
 series of questions.
 
 1.  "What if" I textured some smooth metal circles,
 with the skinny, rounded end of my Chasing Hammer?  -
 lay ring flat on a steel block or anvil, and strike gently
 with hammer, until satisfied with the texture. Remember to
 texture both sides of the ring.
 
 2.  "What if" I joined the circles with Swarovski 4mm
 Bicones links, made with wire wrapped loops, on both ends? -
 see "Tips & Techniques" page for instructions
 
 3.  "What if" I made something symmetrical for a
 change?
 
 4.  "What if" I fell in love with the SW Kaput Oval
 Pendant, in Crystal Light Chrome?
 
 5.  "What if" I mixed Sterling Silver with
 Silvertone?
 
 All of those questions, resulted in this light and easy
 necklace!  The monochromatic colour scheme, makes it
 quite versatile, allowing it to be worn with either jeans,
 or dress clothes.
