My latest piece using gunmetal chain. The muted color of the chain makes for a nice contrast to the Fall colors of the lampwork beads. I've been waiting on using the chain until I had matching findings. I did a similar piece for a pirate themed bracelet, but the headpins were silver. It didn't look bad, but I much prefer the seamless look you get when all the metal matches. This piece looks particularly striking for the use of the fire opal crystal accents.
