THANK YOU TORI SPELLING!
I was browsing around Michael's Craft store the other day and came across a new line of components called Styled by Tori Spelling. Most of what is in the collection, isn't really my style. But THESE, I am digging. They are blinged out metal connectors with rhinestones around the outside edge. There's a little lever that opens the link. Possibilities for these are endless! I bought several of course, some in copper and some in brass.
I used them last night in this necklace design, Pop Fizz. I attached 3 strands of chain to each of the copper links. Created a beaded section with lucite beads and a Glass Garden Bottle cap bead, and an enameled connector from C Koop Beads.
Below you can see the link opened. The coolest part about this piece is, you can detach the beaded section, link the 2 blingy connectors together and wear the chain section as a bracelet! Two for one, Baby!!
This necklace is available on Etsy!
