The Newfangled Neo Chain Blog Hop

Mar 18, 2014

Jewelry Trio

It goes with­out say­ing that there are so many dif­fer­ent types of chain to choose from for string­ing and sewing projects. Dazzle-it NEO is a new col­lec­tion of chain and find­ings fea­tur­ing clas­sic col­ors with a new age twist! The vivid col­ors are quite eye catch­ing and make a great accent to your jew­elry designs. Mix these col­ors together for an extrav­a­gant look or sim­ply add them together with black or white beads to pop the indi­vid­ual col­ors. The pos­si­bil­i­ties are endless.

Neo Findings

For this fun blog hop I was sent the black and white chain and find­ings to use to cre­ate what ever items I wanted. I decided on cre­at­ing a match­ing neck­lace, bracelet and ear­ring set. The NEO chain glit­ters because the cut in the chain exposes the brass beneath, which worked per­fectly with my vin­tage baubles and Maya Road charms. I’m really pleased with how this set turned out and plan on wear­ing them often.

Necklace

Maya Road Leaf Charm

To cre­ate the neck­lace I used both the black and white NEO cut chains. The chain comes in two dif­fer­ent sizes 3.5 x 2mm and 5 x 3mm. I used the 3.5 x 2mm for this neck­lace. I cut the chains to the desired lengths. You will need 2 of each chain color. Then I attached a jump ring to each end of the black and white chains. Since this is a long neck­lace I did not need to attach a clasp as I can just place it over my head.

To adorn the neck­lace I attached a Maya Road Big Leaf Charm and two wire wrapped beads. With this neck­lace you can have one side black and one side white or you can have both col­ors mixed together. Per­son­ally, I pre­fer one side black and one side white.

Bracelet & Earrings

Bracelet Close Up

After I fin­ished cre­at­ing the neck­lace you know I had to make a charm bracelet. I have so many charm bracelets and love each and every­one of them. To make the bracelet I cut three strands of the 5 x 3mm black NEO chain to approx­i­mately 7″ in length. I attached each end of the chains onto a black jump ring from a NEO Find­ings Set then attached a black NEO Lob­ster Clasp. Next all I did was attach vin­tage wire wrapped baubles a Maya Road Mini Tree Charm and two Maya Road Vin­tage What a Hoot Owl Charms. I love how the fin­ished bracelet came out.

Earrings

This ear­ring set was super quick and easy to make. I used the Ear­rings from the NEO Find­ings Set in Black and just attached two wire wrapped beads and a teardrop bead to the ear­rings. BAM done! I was also sent items in their awe­some NEO bright green, pur­ple and blue col­ors and will share these projects dur­ing the week. I made some fun Spring neck­laces for Terri and Ans­ley and a sparkly bracelet from the Metal Com­plex Flat Leather strips I shared in yesterday’s blog post.
