I made this focal piece using traditional stained glass techniques of soldering with bevels and encasing a piece of my hand painted silk fabric. I considered using a simple commercial chain but I wanted to really pop the focal and pull in more depth with the complementary wire and texture using the lovely crystal links. When you need something simple and functional, consider making your own chain. Then see where it takes you! To add a focal piece or not - that is the question (sorry Shakespeare)!
