My mom shared a great tip with me over the weekend.

For those of you looking to score inexpensive ball chain material for your jewelry creations, opt for the ceiling fan/lighting pull chains instead…You get a lot more material for your money and you can also purchase the extra clasps in order to adjust size and easily customize several necklace chains out of one package.

They come in various metals and you will also find a choice in diameter.  Look for them in the lighting accessory section of your local home improvement store.

So much more economical.

Love this….Cheers to the pull chain!

    Going to the Rock and Gems shows you’ll find great prices on all jewelry making supplies and real stones.

    I find using natural items in jewelry is always best. I’ll be glad to share some of my ideas.
