Have a favorite lampworked rondelle you don't know what to do with? Suspend it by chain and surround it with complementary beads as Andrew did! This project is from Stringing magazine.

Dear Michelle Mach:

Thank you for this project that can be used to recycle chain and it is quite simplistic and easy to make.  I also wanted to thank you for publishing my name in your letters to the editor.  I love your magazine.

I really like the different types of chain used to create this piece.  It takes it to a piece of art jewelry that should be displayed and sold in a gallery.  This piece could even be layered with a couple of more silver chains hanging loosely really focusing on the piece as the focal point.  Beautiful piece.

Love it and the clasp has inspired me to start experimenting with clay clasps as an option to expensive metal.

Thank you!  What a BEAUTIFUL piece and wonderful idea!  I'll have to make some to give as gifts, as well as make one for myself.  :-)
