3 Strand Vintage Brass Chain Necklace with Rhinestone Pendants
I love making necklaces and bracelets that have many strands but connect with ONE clasp. It's efficient and stylish and smart.
The longest strand is approx 22" (11" drop). At the very bottom I used the last portion of a vintage, WWII soldiers brass rosary (!!!). I hung a repurposed round rhinestone pin from the bottom of that. Then there are 2 square-cut Czech glass connectors and on each side I attached a different, vintage, watch chains. At the top are 2 more smaller square-cut Czech glass connectors.
The middle strand is approx. 17" ( 8 1/2" drop). The chain is a spectacular vintage watch chain with sweet detailed links. Hanging from that strand is the third component of a 1920's vintage cut-glass choker. (I made earrings from the other 2 components which have a curve to them. Dreamy. they are called "Square Cuts Vintage Repurposed Earrings".)
The shortest strand is approx 14" (7" drop). Again, I found another wonderful, vintage, brass, watch chain with yet another delicate-patterend links. From that strand hangs a gorgeous vintage rhinestone repurposed button.
They all attach with a great clasp from yet another vintage watch chain. It's quite a unique clasp, too.
