While going through my stash I found some filigree that fit perfectly, though, with just a little trimming:
Here's another one:
The skull charm is another scavenged find, although I added the red crystals:
I made the loops for the little pink Swarovski crystals myself - which I'm pointing out because it was a PAIN:
And finally, for something completely different:
This one's my favorite. :)
I saw a similar design on Pinterest, and since I'd just purchased some wing charms anyway, figured I'd give it a try. All you need is a Dremel to drill extra holes in the wing tips:
That chain is one of the coolest link designs I've ever seen, btw. I found it and the other heavy chains in this post from a junky stall at Renningers, the giant antique market out in Mount Dora. There was an enormous box full of random chains, and if I ever find that seller again, I may have to buy the whole thing!
Hope you guys liked the eye candy! I'm debating trying to sell a few pieces from time to time, assuming I can ever bear to part with any, of course. ;) Not ready to take that leap yet, though, so for now I'll just keep making the pretties, and hope they help inspire my fellow tinkerers!
Oh, and you can see my other key necklaces here, if you missed 'em way back when.
