Summer Lookbook Jewelry by Quiet Lion Creations

Part dark fairytale, part tangled mess, my newest piece’s grungy opulence make it great for pairing with any outfit. I’m obsessedddd with anything mixed metal, and chain scraps I had laying around provided the perfect base for the fringe details. Gunmetal, silver and antique gold?? Why not?

As usual, safety pins star here as both handy dandy crystal holders and edgy detailing. Why use jump rings when you can edge it up with pins?

For a very quick and simple way to create your own piece like this, follow below….

  1. Cut two lengths of antique gold cable chain, one about 18″ and one about 20″-22″ or so.
  2. Cut many lengths of 2.5″-5″ chain, attaching each piece to a link on the cable chains you cut last step. I did gunmetal chain on the longer length, and silver on the shorter.
  3. Connect the ends of the 18″ and 22″ chains together with a jumpring, adding a clasp and an extender….
  4. Create bead links from 4 large crystals (use different shapes for an eclectic look).
  5. Use  jump rings and safety pins to connect them to the shorter 18″ chain. You can also dangle more antique gold chain from these rings and safety pins. You can even add small bicones to the pins themselves, or dangle charms. That part’s up to you!

If you’re feeling adventurous, wear as a long necklace (the clasp becomes somewhat hidden in the fringe) for a different look. It was also only fitting for this shoot to include some sort of smoky ambiance and scents from Tokyomilk.

With Halloween coming up, get ready for a shift of focus – more spooky, slightly creepy-chic and autumn-themed tuts on their way!
