Christmas Project #12

Gypsy Necklace
guest designer Kerry Lynn

As far as we can remember we have never had a piece of jewelry featured on the Gypsy Journal... until today!
I made the necklace with vintage chain and pieces from the 7gypsies crystal Princesca kit.  For the spoon charm, I drilled a hole at the bottom and added a small crystal dangle from the same kit. 

The linen fabric is ruche threaded with wire {super easy w/o a needle since linen is a loose weave} and then I created a hook at the top of the linen and at the end of the wire for the closure. I then attached 4 different large jumprings to the double layered seam binding so that i could wear it at different lengths.  The hook on the linen/wire part links to these.
This picture shows it short.
and this picture shows it long.
We love this idea!
The only question is...
How many can we make before next Thursday?
"lets see... one for my sister, my best friend, my mom and there's the gift exchange and..."
