fringe necklace

Artist Statement: I decided to take the idea of my basic fringe necklace, and turn up the fringe dial to "maximum". I love how this piece came out, and will no doubt be doing further maxed out fringe necklace experiments.

The first verison of this necklace I made was a one of a kind piece using a vintage necklace as the base, however after receiving a lot of interest in it I decided to track down some new chain and start making them from scratch. Now I'm doing them up in all sorts of colour combos, in both gold tone and silver tone chain. It's a real mash up of things I love, it truly is.

The chain on this necklace is a soft gold colour, although it is not real gold. There are 4 different styles of chain included in this necklace, of various contents. The largest chunky chain is aluminum with a gold tone finish, which helps prevent this piece from weighing a ton. The other chains are either brass or steel with a gold tone finish. The multiple chains are joined together at the back with a great sliding latch that locks in place, making the chains nice and secure. I have hand stitched the fringe with matching thread along the lowest hanging chain, so it is very secure. Go ahead, wear this necklace out dancing! You may get fringe stuck all over your sweaty neck, but damn, you'll look amazing!

Check my shop for some of my other fringe necklaces (I have some more simple ones, as well as more colours in this style)
