i probably should have taken a before picture but I didn't think of it at the time... I got this cool vintage necklace at the thrift store. When I got it all the white parts were hanging vertically from two white chains. I took them apart and laid them out in a more abstract pattern, added the gold chain and little pink beads, and reconnected one of the chains to the opposite side so it would cross over. The pictures aren't great but I like how it came out. It's huge and funky.
That second pic is to show how it actually hangs with the chain crossing over. http://www.imagestation.com/picture/sraid216/p5c751506ea8992055066e702174a83c9/ecb1edad.jpghttp://www.imagestation.com/picture/sraid216/pc776557529242277cc5c4faf4f32959b/ecb1ed4b.jpg
