First and Last

Going back in time. I bought a roll of chain from a vendor at the Bead & Button show. It was the last of it's kind so I was told. I loved the tear shape and how it was connected. I used the first links on The Dazzled Necklace. A few dragonflies were adorned with the chain. I gave some of the chain away. Next I made earrings with the links.
I've come to the last of the links in the chain. It was a perfect match for this bracelet with a rivoli.

I have searched the internet high and low and haven't found another source for this chain. It is copper and measures 5/8 of an inch tall by a 1/2 half. If you should see something similar I would love to hear about it.

Thanks for stopping by.

When I Bead

Cricket looks like this. Just a little sad. Wondering when I'll put the beads down and play with him.
