My grandma gave me a bunch of her old costume jewelry, that was broken. I found this pendant in the batch and decided to make this necklace.

The links consist of gold tone eye pins; blue and white Cat's Eye beads, an pink seed beads, and a gold tone spacer bead.
Its measures about 25 inches (64 cm); the pendant measures 2 inches (4.5 cm).
The vintage pendant is gold tone, with a gold colored teardrop.
It features a large rectangular blue stone with two little pink stones.

I even duplicated the necklace's design for another pendant from my boyfriend's grandmother that I will hopefully pass down someday.

That's really pretty. I inherited a lot of 'junk' jewelry too- it's fun to try to think up ways to use it.

Oh that looks great!

Nice job on reusing something that might otherwise have gotten tossed, too!
