Look What I Made: Repurposed Necklace
I got this necklace free when I bought a set of bangles at a yard sale and I’ve been meaning to fix it up ever since.
I cut off the string and removed the wires around the beads on the end. I knew I wanted to make a necklace from the beads, but I didn’t know how long or how many strands so I just free-styled it. Using a clear, elastic cord I ended up with two strands which I then tied to some jump rings and a lobster clasp.
I had enough beads to make another necklace, but decided to just go the simple route and make myself a bracelet. PS: Brushing a bit of top coat onto your knots will help keep them from unraveling. :)
I still have a few left over beads, but I’m not really sure what I should do with them yet so I’m just keeping them around until inspiration strikes!
