Ah the joy of a bit of vintage crystal chain. Add to it the joy of Yarnplayers hand dyed thread, and you have the following-
This method of adding to the chain has the particular charm of displaying the HDT (hand dyed thread) in it's finest glory :-) [this is Yarnplayers garden afternoon, not one of my hdts]
Here is the back of the chain when finished.
And a picture of the clasp to satisfy an earlier commenter. I use a small magnetic clasp on these bracelets. It holds well and makes it easy to put on. This is the way I have devised to attach it to sections of chain. I have done some that are bracelets with a clasp attached, but it's easier to find more unique chain in sections or pieces of yardage. This chain is salvaged from a long vintage necklace so it has that vintage charm and quality that I adore.
I think I adore it enough that I shall have to keep this one and make another for the ETSY shop instead.......
