Recycling Jewelry

Image

 

I created this piece from two necklaces that I got from a local thrift store. I went in and asked if they had any broken jewelry and sure enough they did, I paid $10 for a fairly decent sized bag of jewelry that would have otherwise been thrown out. The beads are made from polymer clay.

My creative juices started flowing, and so I got out my supplies, I had gone to Kohl’s recently and purchased several necklaces and bracelets that were reduced. I paid about $40, saving $121…WOW!! (really alot more, because the beads would have cost twice as much at the craft store or online) I quite like this necklace. So, there’s an idea for you, go to the store after a big holiday and purchase the reduced items.

This beautiful necklace is one of my favorites. It’s for sale at my Etsy shop, it’s called “Corallium & Pearls”, here’s the link https://www.etsy.com/listing/158316663/corallium-pearls-necklace?  This was made from beads taken from a bucket of vintage beads, necklaces, and other assorted jewelry items. The coral beads were on a faded string falling apart so I made a necklace and bracelet from the lot of them. Then in this lot of vintage assortment were some faux pearls and vintage gold beads, just lovely, I knew instantly that these would pair well with the coral beads. So the three became one. What a match, just lovely.
