Chandelier Crystal Necklace
This is what I did with one of the chandelier crystals that I picked up at an antique store at the beginning of the summer.
I started with a crystal and an old earring that I picked up in a bag of jewelry bits. I removed the clip from the earring and hung the crystal from the earring loop using some gold wire. For some added bling I added a couple other small dangling crystals.
I made the chain from two different thicknesses of gold chain. I used a latch at the end so that I could use the chain with other pendants. The chain is fairly long.
I've seen some other neat things done with these crystals to transform them into necklaces that I am hoping to try!
