Jewelmint Here to Eternity- Day 1

I decided to wear my Jewelmint Here to Eternity necklace out today. I paired it with my Laura Ashley x Uniqlo top for a more feminine, dainty look.

The necklace felt rather comfortable, and looks quite quaint. I chose to wear the necklace at its shortest length (about 16 inches) so that the three charms are visible from the neckline of my top.

However, one of my gripes about the necklace is the fact that it is three-stranded. This causes the necklace to tangle very easily on one side, and the necklace would look very messy. The attachment of the three chains are all connected to a single jumpring, hence the chains are all clustered together at the back. The pendants and charms are all very light, causing the necklace to shift very easily.

Since it is a dainty necklace, I feel that it is best worn when one is mainly sedentary. I wouldn't recommend it if you intend to run around- the entire configuration of the necklace would be messed up!

I'm actually planning to deconstruct the necklace a bit- the engineer in me is beckoning! Since one of the main problem is due to the single jumpring holding 3 chains, I'd be switching the jumpring to a bar connectior. This way, the chains would be separated from each other and can hang down on their own. Not a bad idea, right? I'll be picking up the connector from the local craft shop later. Such connectors are often used for multi-strand jewellery, so it will probably work better. In addition, I think using multiple jumprings or twisting wires into loops to connect the chains would work as well.

Will see how my improvisation goes! Love the look, and hope the necklace will stay in place for the rest of the day.
