I've started making jewellery?

A few months ago I was searching around on the web for a new head chain. The only one I had was one I bought for a Galadrial costume (as a cheap alternative to her circlet), I'm pretty sure it was off eBay from China so it was pretty inexpensive.

I don't seem to have any photos in full costume and not intoxicated...

If you watch my YouTube videos you would've seen it in my mindfulness video! It's just a three chained head chain, a quite big metal circle to the front with a metal and diamante sphere hanging from it.

When I was searching for another head chain I had quite a specific idea of what I wanted it to look like, I knew I definitely wanted a crystal to be the main focus, with a little extra detailing... but not too much. After searching for a while and not finding what I was after I thought fuck it! I'll just make it myself! I ordered a bunch of different supplies and waited impatiently for everything to arrive, then as soon as everything was together I started playing around trying figure out the best way to create my idea.

I was pretty pleased with my first attempt, I was expecting it to come out terribly but I was pleasantly surprised with myself. It was by no means perfect, but after wearing my first endeavour for a couple of days I decided on a few alterations I wanted to make. 

I really didn't like the colour difference of the metal cones to the silver chain, how the cone was attached to the head chain (as I thought the wiring looked quite untidy and just wasn't quite right), also, a bunch of my friends wanted to try it on and found it was a little tight on them (I have quite a small head). So I ordered some silver cones, decided to try again with some gunmetal chain, figure out a neater way to wrap the wiring, and altered the measurements for the chain.

After making my improvements on the next few head chains these are what I came out with:

Rose Quartz crystal

 Blue Aventurine crystal

Carnelian crystal
I'm quite happy with how they're turning out and I'm also making silver versions and still playing around with different ideas! It'd be awesome if you guys could let me know what you think! I have loads of different types of crystals in different colours so if you'd like any more information just send me a message! It's usually best to message me on my Facebook page but any of my social platforms would work if you don't have a Facebook account.

Thanks for reading!
