I made a new necklace this weekend. The local bead store was having a sale and I found this sparkling pendant that I simply had to have. Sometimes gaudy is good… or if not good, at least fun. So here is it strung with some pretty pink beads along with some baubles I salvaged from an old Chico’s necklace that I wasn’t wearing very much. Since discovering jewelry making, I’ve taken to prying apart old necklaces and reworking them into new necklaces. It kind of reminds me of playing with pop-beads when I was a little girl, remember pop-beads? It was great fun then and it still is!
