I’m taking a risk by telling you my new creative idea, because you’ll either think I’m a genius, or else or totally tacky. There’s no middle ground.
Here goes… I just bought a really cute glass pendant at a new gallery in Greenville, but couldn’t find a chain that was the length I wanted. All the chains were too long on me (but not long enough to look cute — just awkward.)
Somehow, I got the bright idea that I could use an extension chain that you would attach to a ceiling fan, as the necklace for my new pendant. So I went to Wal-Mart (basically the only store in Travelers Rest, in case you wonder why that’s the only place I shop anymore) and sure enough… I found exactly what I was looking for. I think it was $2.98, so I SPLURGED and got two! One silver and one bronze.
I feel like this simple idea has revolutionized my accessories, because it works with some other chain-less pendants I had lying around too! You can vote as to how you feel about wearing hardware as jewelry at the end of this blog. 🙂
The coolest thing about these chains, is that you can adjust the length simply by cutting the chain with a scissors. (Then if you want it longer again, just re-attach the two sections back together with the little attachment part that comes with the chain.)
