Whooeee - I came across some beautiful vintage chain this week, and was very inspired by it's shapes. The long dangling tassels are something I'm going to be working more with, lot's of ideas on that front.

I wish I had more of the thick tubed chain from the second necklace. It's kind of like a charm bracelet shape. I love how it looks mixed with the long thin flat links, and the full faux suede fringe. Yesterday, i mixed a new bluish grey dye which turned out better than expected. It's hard for me to get enough of grey and silver.

If anyone knows someone who's sitting on a pile of costume chain (that's a funny picture) please direct them my way. I'm always looking for a pile of mystery jewelry to de-tangle for hours.
