Today I finally got the last of the jewelry supplies. Turns out the chains I got are a bit too delicate for hanging around your neck (at least for the necklaces I'm making), but works very nicely for multiple pendants on one necklace... you'll see what I mean. And the bigger silver rings are too thick to go through the small silver chain which is annoying, but mum had some in stor eI could use today. Will just have to buy some if I wanna make more necklaces.

Anyhow, I made three necklaces!
All are for sale, somewhat.

First I made the golden snitch (a Harry Potter thing if you don't know).

The ball is an antique brass locket and so has some spots (but I could probably polish it), and so it opens. Just room for a picture, not to put anything "in the ball" so to speak.
Wings, ring and chain are all silver plated or silver coloured.
I love how it turned out but as my love for Harry Potter stops at "hm, I enjoy reading the books" it's not a necklace for me. So this very necklace is indeed for sale, and I have supplies for five more (chain is optional).

Then we have the Lord of the Rings necklaces. For now I have just made two Éowyn/Faramir ones.
The tree is for Gondor (Faramir's home), the horse for Rohan (Éowyn's home) and the moon is for Ithilien (where they settled after the War of the Ring. They were titled Prince and Lady of Ithilien and lived happily ever after~~)

In silver

In antique brass

The brass necklace closes using a big beautiful toggle clasp

Both LotR necklaces are for me, but I can make more. I do not have more of the chain that goes around the neck for the brass one (just have the more delicate chain used for hanging the horse and moon). I only have one brass tree like that left, but I have two other ones, almost as big but with leaves and in a circle. And I have smaller toggle clasps as well as regular lobster ones.
When it comes to the silver one I have the exact same supplies for several more necklaces.

I also have small simple silver swords, about the same length as the silver moon. So they can be added or used to make necklaces for the Rohirimm (horse + sword), Gondorians (tree + sword) or Rangers of Ithilien (tree + moon + sword).

Of course the silver necklaces including a tree can be made in the same way as the brass one, hanging for example the sword and moon from the tree charm, but of course the tree would be much smaller and the charms would end up very close together. I still think it'd be beautiful though.

I am considering taking something around $10 for a necklace.
So if you want one, just poke me yeah?

Oh, man! Those are so lovely! I think the silver is my favorite, but they're all really pretty.

Aw, thank you sweetie!

I will totally make you one as I promised, as a gift of course. If you want one that is XD
Faramir/Éowyn, like the one there? Or some other combination? (In silver I have trees, horsies, swords, moons and wings. Oh and connectors like these (http://www.etsy.com/transaction/43166507) to be used instead of the ring if wanted. Yup yup, lots of possibilities)

Of course I want one! :D But I shall have to think what I'd want on it...horses and swords, probably, heh. (I think the only thing I don't like is the moon with the face, 'cause the face creeps me out a bit.) But I love the Faramir/Éowyn one...love that moon--and the tree. But then I love swords, too--and that other connector is way cool--so it's hard! (A happy dilemma, heh.) I shall think on it....
(Ah, and a note--I like long chains because I has a big ol' neck and a short chain can end up looking too short on me. Not that I have anything helpful to give you, like an actual measurement of how long is long enough. I could work on that.)

The one you shall have! :D

Well, you CAN have a big whooping combo of tree/moon/horse/sword(s) XD
We also have this 1-5 connector (http://ny-image2.etsy.com/il_fullxfull.169209998.jpg) for 5 charm "strands" or whatever to call them.
But yeah, take your time and think about it. I'll make sure to save some of everything especially for you.

*nods* I think long chains look best with this as well. If you can measure at some point that would obviously be awesome, but otherwise I'll make something up xD

I don't wanna go nuts or anything and have it look too busy.... Hmmm, perhaps we can talk about it and you can show me pics of stuff. (When you have time, of course--no rush, and I hate to be a pest over my own gift, eeek!)

I'll see later how long the chain on my dog tag is; I think this should be just a little shorter....

Yep, it's in usd (+ some shipping, whatever that might be... probably something like $3, need to check with the postal service and weigh it and stuff)

I'm glad you like it! :D
