chains before... stored in a vintage cigarette box, sorted with twist ties and ziploc bags....
ok, so my chain situation was getting a bit out of hand... i had them plastic bags, and if i was lucky, they were maybe separated by twist ties. i've been on the hunt for a nice plain black velvet chain roll. but no luck... i found a few half velvet ones- velvet on the inside, and vinyl on the outside. how tacky. and $20-30 for that garbage. and with only 8 loops.
"oh, here's your $120 handcrafted silver necklace, and here, let me get you a chain from this thing that looks like it's a dollar store."
no way. there was this other one, that was made from fake suede, burgundy on one side and grey on the other. for $57!!!!!! what a piece of junk.
"oh, here's your painstakingly handcrafted one of a kind sterling silver necklace, and why don't i get you a chain from this ultra-suede monstrosity that was obviously sewn by a colorblind left handed child laborer?"
so since i'm done all my holiday sales and shows for this season, i decided to make my own... in leather. black leather. with black snaps... and silk covered elastics, they kind of look too much like hair scrunchies, so i might switch them to leather straps some other time. this leather chain roll 17 loops. i'm quite pleased with it. and there's loops to spare.
