Re Purposed Necklace

A while back, you may remember my post about the fun jewelry my sister-in-law sent to me. This has been a great source of inspiration and fun.

I dug thru the bag and found some awesome button covers. Hello 90's! Working with gold is way out of my comfort zone, so I challeneged myself this morning to create. I had a bit of gold wire from a custom order, so I set to work.

This delicious mess of disguarded jewlery proved to be a treasure trove of gold accents to work into this piece.

If you look closely at the top photo you will see the gold beaded strand that I used as the base of the design, and the button covers peaking out. I incoporated gold beads from another necklace, and some fun plastic beads I got as a grab bag. Way too much fun this morning!
