not sure if this is the right thread to post this

inspired by the Givenchy fw collection's massive cluster of chains with charms on them, i decided to make a gothic pimp chain necklace for myself...but less clustered and...heavy. of course, if i can, i would make it just as clustered but i would need to make an iron neck myself as well! the Givenchy necklace does look incredibly heavy but i wonder if it really is so...

Givenchy fw
it all started with these pictures, hehe



style.com

and here is the result!


it doesnt look as WOW as the real givenchy necklace but it's awsome enough for me and it's already rather heavy

initially it didnt take too long to make the necklace, but i did have some tool trouble in the begining. the adding on charms and post-fixing the chain part took me at least one full hour. having to put on charms and take them off and putting them on again sure wasnt fun for my fingers and nails. but the result is worth it!

MUXU, you're genius Just looking back and forth at your creation and the Givenchy ones, I reckon I like yours much more now; its more simple and not as chunky but its still fabulous.

educo - ok haha. i guess i will have to visit csm soho campus more than

made another chain necklace yesterday. it's a simple one this time and less heavy actually though it looks really heavy. it took me a couple of hours to get the length of each chain right. kept on taking out and putting in the chains to make perfect.

the initial way of how to wear the necklace is like this


but after playing around i found 5 other ways to wear it, the fifth one is wearing the chains on my back which i didnt take a picture of






for this one, you have to use a pin to secure the lower side to the side of the shirt


there is actually another way to wear which is wearing the neck chain on top of the head but that is too theatrical so im not gonna post it
