Every now and then some of the places I order beads from will send me free samples of jewelry findings from their shop. And I loooooooooove FREE stuff! One shop sent me this antique style filigree wrap, but I put it to the side having NO CLUE what to do with it. I recently decided to use the piece to make a necklace and this is what I came up with! I'm not sure what the actual use of this metal wrap is, but I was so smittened by the final product I ordered more peices to make more necklaces!!!!!!!
