Trash To Treasure…. Vintage Repurposed Dangle Bracelets

I just love old floral looking pieces…. this was a very long necklace that had many missing pieces…

To me, it needed to be a bracelet.   I reused the existing chain and latch, but made the beads all fit together.  I think I will be wearing this one often, it will match anything.

I just love all the detail… I am guessing this was from the 60’s…. I of course found it at a yard sale.

Here is another bracelet I did the same way.  I really like the double chain and the color of the beads.

These are so much fun to wear.  And I make mine slightly oversized so it is comfortable and you can see it under a jacket. 

Thanks so much for stopping by….Brooke
