Mid-Week Mutterings - Another, "I Need Something to Wear for Work" at the Last Minute Post
Monday the weather got cold enough to get out a sweater. I wore a white cotton cable knit over a gray polo and topped that off with a gray and white tweed blazer. I decided to wear my Toolbox Treasures pendant with it.
Decided on the chain I wanted to use, which I bought at Michael's ages ago - from the Lost and Found (Blue Moon) collection. To make the lanyard, first I put a gunmetal jump ring and lobster claw to each end of the chain - I don't remember for certain where I got these, but they are both available at Rings & Things and I think these were from there, too. Then I put a gunmetal split ring on an extra large gunmetal lobster claw, (both definitely purchased from Rings & Things - I kept the labels), to hold the badge loop. By hooking both of the small lobster claw finished ends through the split-ring, I now have a badge lanyard necklace that took probably 10 - 15 minutes at most to make:
All I needed now was a bracelet. This time I used the same chain (more Lost and Found by Blue Moon, purchased at Michael's) that I'd hung the Toolbox Treasure pendant on, added the jump rings and lobster claw clasp. To finish it, I put two Tim Holtz Sprockets, picked up on a whim at Michael's the other day, on a large oval light gunmetal (looks more like pewter, actually) jump ring and strung the two chains through the jump ring. Ten minutes? Maybe a tad more if you count hunting out all the right parts from the boxes I store them in.
I made it out of the house in time, by the way.
The whole set:
See you tomorrow!
