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.

In the end, only kindness matters.

Oh that looks great!

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