Modern Metal Necklaces: Linda’s Newest Creations

Posted on

Modern Metal Necklaces by Linda HollerbachLinda loves to play with trends and patterns when making her original jewelry, and for the start of 2016, she’s experimenting with these sleek modern metal necklaces.

She creates these necklaces by connecting hammered metal squares with jump rings, which require a very precise technique to properly close and secure. In class, Linda always reminds students that you have to “wiggle” the jump rings in such a way to make the molecules tighten up.

Since necklaces these days are all about length, Linda made these beauties extra long and dramatic as statement pieces, perfect for work or a night out. I personally love the one with chain fringe!

Are you trying something new in the new year? What is your great experiment for 2016?
