Handcrafted Jewelry – Totally Gaudacious

Standard

Gaud-awful Good!

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!
