Curiosity necklace guide
About my Curiosity necklaces...
My curiosity necklace is made to look as if you are wearing lots of different necklaces together.
I used 4 lengths of chain in different thicknesses connected at each end to a textured metal circle to create that look. Additional lengths of chain lead from the circles to complete the necklace with a hook clasp.
Chain 1 is chunky, chains 2 and 3 are medium and chain 4 is fine (insert photo). The chandelier crystal is integrated into chain 3 and the pendant is suspended from chain 4. These don’t tangle when worn, but can easily do so if not carefully stored
I’ve then added some themed curiosities to those chains – repurposed vintage jewellery such as single earrings and pendants, vintage metal stampings and beads and some everyday objects such as chandelier crystals and keys.
Putting on the necklace
Hold the two rings so that the textured side faces you. The chunky chain should be at the top (neck edge).
Pull the rings apart, and see if the chains have become tangled. If they have lay down the necklace and move the chains until they untangle. Sometimes one of the rings may have slipped between the chains and will need to be revered out to untangle the chains.
You will know when the necklace is untangled because the fine chain and pendant will hang behind the two medium thickness chains.
Turn the necklace around and put it on. Check to see how it is sitting and flick any of the charms or pendants into the position you want.
Storing the necklace
If your necklace is placed down in a heap or is stored with other jewellery it is very likely to tangle.
When you take off your necklace I would recommend straightening it out. Double it up and store flat in a separate box to your other jewellery.
If you have a jewellery stand you can easily store the necklace by hanging it from the two rings. Then when you want to wear it again it should be in the same order as when you removed it.
I think these necklaces are a lot of fun. I hope you enjoy wearing them,
