Back in the spring when I was making so many Rio Ribbed Rounds, I knew immediately I had to have some jewelry made from them! I whipped this cathedral length necklace up in an evening using scraps of two of my favorite kinds of chain.
and cable chain.
Each bead is separated by three inches of chain. I used a variety of vibrant Swarovski crystals to keep the party feel going.
I love the feel of the swinging long chain but, you know I have my klutzy days! I can just picture myself getting it caught on a swinging door or the arbor in my backyard! For those times, I shorten it with a pearl shortener.
I've found this piece to be so versatile in my wardrobe! It's a great design for any combination of beads or stones that work together!
Rio Ribbed Rounds are still being made to order.
