Today on Trash to Treasure we are taking a inexpensive piece of costume jewelry and repurposing it with vintage necklace pieces and jewels….
Here it the before necklace, it is nice, but nothing extraordinary. I have worn it a few times, but it seemed to be too light to match the aqua colored shirts in my wardrobe.
Here is the broken vintage necklace I found at a yard sale. It is pretty, but again… not really a keeper.
I had been looking for a good project for these glass crystals… they are a beautiful peacock blue-green.
So I started by adding them to the gold necklace every third bead. Instantly much better…
The next part was tricky…. getting the correct lengths for the chains. I ended up adding three more glass beads to make the pendant hang lower. I think it brings it all together.
Here is the finished necklace… It is a blurry picture, but you can see it hangs nicely. It can now go with sage green, taupe, turquoise and blues… I think I will be wearing it much more often now.
Thanks for stopping by!
