My Fetish Necklace - LOADS of Altered Charms!

Still a bit under the weather today so I was trying to come up with something I could share with you to really get you excited about Altered Charms without having to think too hard.  My brain isn't functioning as well as it should be ~ some of my meds make me loopy.

SO, I thought I'd share my very own fetish necklace that I made several years ago.  I shared it here on the blog in 2008 so most of you might not have seen it yet.  It's got TONS of altered charms including everything from tiny glass bottles, altered puzzle pieces, collaged dominoes, watch parts and pieces (even before Steampunk was cool), tokens, beads, keys and more!

The base that I hung all of the charms off of is actually a piece of red wire.  I tightly wrapped it around the handle of one of my stipple brushes to create the spiral.  When I had about a 6" spiral I slid it off the brush and stretched it out so there was about 1/4" space between each curl.   The charms are attached to this spiral with jump rings.  I used a piece of ribbon threaded through it for the actual necklace.

Enjoy :)

  14. Oh my goodness Roni. I can't help but imagine you jingling and jangling as you walk down the sidewalk with this necklace on! LOL! Love all the charms...especially the little bottle and the domino charms! I am the proud owner of some of your charms myself and have been hoarding them but may have to make a necklace here soon. Not as dramatic as yours though!
