Asymmetrical Necklaces... with vintage beginnings

These necklaces I made in summer. (As those of you who know me can probably sleuth that one out from the fire engine hair) I used vintage chains, findings, and pearls mixed with some new beads and findings. The one to the left I wanted it to look like an ocean treasure. I had originally hoped for the piece with the three smaller beads hanging from it to be in the center... but the weight of the other beads didn't allow for that. You win some, you loose some.
Ha ha... I have to laugh at myself in this second picture, but that aside,I love the look of random pearls and chains just draped aimlessly. This last necklace is made completely of reassembled vintage jewelery. If you are into making jewelery I highly recommend taking a trip to your thrift stores to add some vintage to your pieces.
