AAO Charm Swap Necklace




I just received my charms from a swap hosted by Becky New for Altered Art Obsession. They were so FUN that I couldn't wait to turn them into a necklace. I made a holder for the charms out of looped and hammered copper wire. Then I took an old necklace made of strings, which had a lobster clasp, and attached it to one end with a jump ring. Then I attached all of the charms to the loops. I only used the ones that were similar in size. I have several larger ones that I will use as pendants. I really like the way the necklace turned out. It's fun to wear something like that because people always ask questions about it. Then I can tell them about my wonderful art swap friends scattered all around the world.
