Cappuccino for Two Necklace

This piece was about two things – experimenting with making something very versatile, and those gorgeous coffee quartz drops (Auntie’s Beads).  I’ve had that pair of drops for about a year now, trying to think up something “worthy” of them, lol!  I thought I’d like something where I could adjust where they would lie so started chaining jumprings and some silver connectors from Fire Mountain Gems.  48 inches worth of chaining, to be exact (I’m really starting to get good at opening and closing jumprings, lol).  Yes, it’s super long, and meant to be wrapped around a few times and then use the clasp (I actually switched the one shown out for a lobster clasp that stays put better) to secure it so that you can literally place the two quartz pieces anywhere you’d like.  I’ve tried it out with several different styles of shirts and love that I can make it work with anything. Plus it’s a fabulous toy for those moments of boredom, lol.
