A couple of weeks back, on a cold and rainy day, several new additions to our Luxe Collection were born. Every jewelry designer will have some excess chain and charms hanging around at any given time and, since I put myself on a "NO more supplies!" buying freeze, I decided I must be more resourceful and use up some of my existing supplies.
I knew I wanted my new pieces to be simple, yet chic. And what's more chic than a lariat or y necklace?! So, using nothing more than chains, jump rings, clasps and a charm for one piece, I set to work.
The results were pieces that I will keep for myself, which is always a temptation when you are creating! One piece features just one type of chain, while another combines two different types. And let's not forget the one with the edgy dagger, or the rose gold one!
I had set myself the challenge of using the supplies I already had to hand, rather than buying more, and I'm delighted with the results and my new Luxe Collection creations! Which just goes to show, you don't always need to "buy, buy, buy" - just shop from your existing supply stash!
Thank you for sharing with us, Gaetana! See you all soon for another Whats on My Bench!
