Deck Your Neck August 15, 2014 by Sally 2 Comments Here are several of the necklaces I’ve made recently. Three of them include repurposed pieces from older jewelry. It’s always fun finding ways to incorporate unwanted or abandoned bits into new work. “Neon Lights” is definitely eye-candy! Made with glass beads from the Czech Republic. (Sold) I added dyed freshwater pearls to an upcycled gold leaf. The person who bought it loved it because to her it looked like an angel. Ah, the eye of the beholder … (Sold) “Dark Magic” is one of my favourite upcycled pieces. The focal was an earring I found in southern Arizona. I added a glass diamond-shaped bead and several Preciosa crystals. (Sold) Dyed freshwater pearls and a single glass bead make a striking focal. (Sold) Closeup of “Orange Blossom”. The centre drop is repurposed from an old earring. (Sold) About these ads Share this:SharePocketShare on TumblrEmailPrintLike this:Like Loading... Related Author: Sally Beads?
