My black, black heart: pendants and necklaces

As I previously mentioned, I’ve been making a few different necklaces – some more complicated than others – but some just really simple pendants. Although they aren’t too fussy, I figured I’d post a quick picture nonetheless…

The first photo is a black heart pendant with red gemstones, strung on black coated chain, and finished off with a black toggle and ring clasp.  I’ve worn this a few times now, and the coating doesn’t seem to irritate my skin which is fantastic! I went and looked for black coated findings as well, but they only had jump rings instead of split rings, so instead I just gently opened up a link of the chain to attach the toggle.  I actually really like this necklace, and wouldn’t be opposed to finding other pendants – especially if I won’t have an allergic reaction to the metal when it’s coated like this!

All of the items (pendant, chain, toggle) are originally from Michael’s – but only the chain is a recent purchase… the other two items are from a collection I don’t think they carry anymore called “Black Lace” or something similar.

The next photo is of three pendants:

  • An acrylic rose pendant (Michael’s I think)
  • A large pitted silver-tone ankh (from a line I don’t think Wal-Mart carries anymore) with the same spacer beads as I used in the three-layer ankh necklace.
  • A smaller dagger-style ankh (I’m not sure where I got this one)
