I had fun contrasting the bold matte black chain in this necklace with brighter pops of silver. It makes for a dramatic look!

Mixing metals is a great way to create contrast in your jewelry designs. Here, matte black chain is mixed in with silver pieces. The silver items really shine against the matte black. You could recreate this style with a combination of copper and gold, gold and silver, black and gold, and so many more options. See more ideas for mixing metals in your jewelry designs in this Artbeads Cafe episode.
