Braided Leather Necklace with Sterling Silver details
This sporty yet stylish leather and silver necklace works with or without charms.
This leather necklace is amazingly comfortable and feels weightless.
The 17" length allows the braid to round the neck, creating a flattering line allowing the ring to rest at your clavicle.
The idea was to have no clasp at the back. To accomplish this we used the ring. By filing down a small area of the ring, we were able to make it thin enough to slide thru the opening of the hook.
Lisa says: I like it with at least one charm and recommend the large size. Choose the Large Dog below. Whatever charm(s) you hang from the ring are also permanently attached. Any and all will work, although I do recommend using the larger size. This necklace is bold and a small charm would be lost and lonely.
Lisa says: I love wearing a necklace I can't feel. And this is a perfect example. I wanted to make a necklace that you didn't have to fasten at the back. The opening of this choker is not visible but it is in the front. The 2 hooks on either side of the center ring hold the answer. One side, the right, will never open. The left hook, however, will allow the ring to slip thru when the ring is positioned just so. The secret is at the back of the ring where a small area has been filed down to be thinner than the rest of the ring. When that thin part is moved to align with the left hook, the ring slips from the hook and it's open!
All sterling silver components are hand made - truly hand made that starts with smelting your own mix of sterling.
