gray wood charm necklace

this charm-filled necklace fits right in with our pantone colors of the year, but also provides tons of interest & individuality through the selection of charms. check out our collection of gray & yellow products here.

 

 

we chose to use a neutral gray wood round to balance out the multi-dimensional metallic tones of the pewter beads & charms. you will notice that there is an extra bead between the wood rounds once the charm extravaganza begins, put in place to allow the attached charms to move around a little more freely than if they were just strung in between the wood rounds. we used closed (soldered) jump rings to string our charms & beads for extra security.

some of the charms required extra jump rings, even if they have their own bails. we made the loose beads into a charms by wire-wrapping. visit our turn any bead into a charm project or our how-to wire-wrap learn page for more information about that process. 

once the necklace was strung, we finished it off with an extra crystal on either side & attached the finishing touches. for help with crimping on beadalon visit our how-to crimp learn page
