When you put them together they make a one of a kind piece of jewelry.
I have been collecting charms for a bit and had amassed a collection. I have a few charm bracelets that have gotten filled so I kept saving them. Most I got for a dollar to maybe $5. They are all vintage and one of a kind.
The spool of thread I bought in a tin of threads from an estate sale. I loved the writing on the spool so decided after seeing another necklace using a thread spool to add it to my necklace. The fabric charm is one I received in a charm swap. The key is from a Samsonite suitcase according to the writing. I liked the size and shape of it.
I went to my local bead store and bought a length of sterling silver chain. (BTW, if you are shopping for a new necklace this is the way to go. You add the clasp and a couple of rings and you gotcha!) I then set about laying out the charms for placement on the chain. I then added some beads in between.
The finished product I love! It is truly one of a kind.
