Connections and Separations

I made these three-hole separators out of pewter. Mainly, I wanted to see if I could make them.

I planned to use them to separate three strands of pearls.

Or maybe to use to connect a strand of beads to a clasp, one hole to the clasp side and two holes for the strands.


I think they look very steampunk or at least, my idea of what that would be like. Something from the hardware store, with a lot of rough sides but giving a very authentic look to something old and worn.

Like a found object. Only I found them in my imagination.

I like that you found this in your imagination. What wonderful things are our imaginations. Places of dreams and creativity. Like Maire said combining these with pearls will be a great combination of refined and a little bit funky.

Thank you, friends. I was tempted, sorely tempted, to make up a necklace but I held back ... maybe during the holidays I'll make a sparkly necklace for myself.

Greer, what an intriguing idea, my head is now buzzing - I will definitely give that some thought.

Y'all are the BEST!
