last weekend i finally went down to the craft store and bought chains for two pendants. it's about time i did, the cross pendant has been hanging on a makeshift chain, which is actually a thin cloth belt from one of my dresses, for over a year now.
i chose a thin yellow gold chain for the silver sword because i liked the contrasting metals. the chain for the cross pendant is a perfect match with its tiny opal beads - kind of reminds me of a rosary.
the folks at Beadworks were very helpful - they showed me how to crimp the ends of the chains and attach lobster clasps. i would have been lost without them. (d.i.y. is not my forte.)
