A New Line of Necklaces

I made a bunch of fine silver loops (rings? circles?) the other day of varying diameters. Using different hammers, I gave them texture and made some earrings. The larger diameter rings were just too big for earrings so I made some necklaces, with the rings as focal points. Here are two of them. I love the rolo chain I used. I think it's my new favorite: it's substantial without being too heavy. I oxidized all of the silver and tumbled it. This results in a steel gray, sleek and modern finish. I'm also loving the gray handmade paper I used as the backdrop for these photos.

Both of these pieces are for sale in my etsy shop.
