I love it! But I every time I wore it I had the darnedest time figuring out what earrings to wear. The metal was so dark that bright silvers looked wrong. And the style of the necklace seemed to clash with a lot of my black earrings. I looked and looked every time I was in a store for something that might work, and I just couldn't find anything that seemed right. So I decided I had no other choice than to make my own earrings.
I took a trip to the craft store to buy some black earring hooks. Then I took my needle-nose pliers to the necklace and removed two same-sized balls, one from each side of the necklace. Luckily, there are so many balls, that you don't really notice 2 are missing. The balls were just attached to a chain grid, so it was super easy to find symmetrically placed ones to remove. I just bent open the looped wire attaching them to the necklace and bent it closed onto the earring hook:
I love the result! Although this necklace was especially conducive to scavenging earrings off of, I bet this could be done with more necklaces. I totally need to go see what other necklaces in my jewelry box have earrings on them waiting to happen!
