Simple Chain Link Necklace

This handmade necklace design is without any bells and whistles (figuratively and literally). While these handmade necklace designs may vary in lengths and have up to two strands, there are no drops or pendants present. The simple handmade necklace designs work well with almost any neckline and may be worn to compliment other "chain link with drop (aka Y-Necklace)" or "chain link with pendant" necklaces, which will be described in the next article. Of course, they can also be worn alone, and they look magnificent.


All of the necklace designs use either sterling silver or 14kt gold fill wire and some also use matching chain in between the handmade glass beads, Swarovski crystals, pearls and semiprecious stones. All handmade necklaces are secured with a clasp. Depending on the intended length, some necklace may have an extension. These extensions are usually added to shorter necklaces, as it can be difficult to predict t
he neck size that necklace design will end up with. All extension are embellished with matching beads, bring the whole necklace design together as one.

At this time all of the double strand chain link necklaces are designed to be worn as two strands. What do I mean? New designs are coming to Kincaidesigns in "great lengths", which can be worn as the trendy long double strand necklace or a shorter triple strand necklace. The design is basically one long necklace, also known as the Opera Necklace (26-34 inches in length) or th
e Rope Necklace (longer than the Opera Necklace). This style may end up having a category of its own, however, at this time they will be with the chain link necklaces. Not only can they be worn as 2, 3 or even 4 strand necklaces, they can also be wrapped around your wrist as a multiple strand bracelet. Now THAT is versatility.

No matter which way you wear it, the chain link necklace is a must have in your jewelry box. Compliment other necklaces, wear it alone, wrap it around your wrist, or make up a fashion statement of your own.

Cluster Pendant Necklace

For a versatile and even more simple necklace choice, the cluster necklace is perfect. The cluster necklaces got there name from their obvious cluster of beads. These unique cluster pendants can be interchanged, if you want to buy three cluster pendants and only one chain, you have basically chosen 3 necklaces in 1. You can also wear other pendants from the Pendant Boutique at Kincaidesigns, simple string the pendant onto your chain and viola, you have yet another necklace. These necklace are the most simple and affordable jewelry for gifts in the Kincaidesigns Necklace Boutique.


Floating Necklace

The floating necklace got it's name because the beads (almost) look as if they are floating around the neckline. Unlike other necklace designs which have this same effect, we use a beadalon stringing material which isn't clear, or completely transparent. However, because of the necklace design, the beadalon gives a unique quality in design to the necklaces, weaving in and out of the glass beads. While the stringing material isn't completely transparent, it is much less noticeable than chain or a thick cord or leather, therefore the name "floating necklace" stuck. These are also very popular and affordable as gifts. We are aware that gift giving can be expensive, especially when giving multiple gifts at a time. These are great for bridesmaid gifts and they can be custom made to match your wedding colors.
