Interchangeable Scarf Jewelry Pieces

I love things to wear that are multi-functional and interchangeable.  An item that can be used in more than one way is a great wardrobe extender as well as a budget saver.  Obviously others feel the same as me as our earring sales increased a fair bit when we switched over to the interchangeable system with several ear wire styles to choose from.

So now we have come up with a new twist on our scarf jewelry pieces ... we now have a new "interchangeable" series.  The scarf necklace consists of a scarf bail, a pendant charm and a set of cascading beads so they can be easily switched out.  As another alternative, the beads or the charm can also clip on to a chain or cord to wear as a regular necklace without the scarf.

In my tutorial, Constructing Accent Pieces for your Scarves, Sweaters & Shawls, I show how to create a scarf bail from polymer clay as well as to create the bead dangles several different ways.

Here is some feedback we have received so far on this latest tutorial:

"Great thorough tutorial. Very easy to follow."

"Good clear written instructions accompanied by great photos, leaves no lingering question to be answered.  The inclusion of extra information and tips at the end are an added bonus."

I love this concept and your work is exquisite! Where did you get your fold-over clasps? I love that shade of copper!
