I picked up a trio of silver bracelets at a garage sale a while back knowing that one of these days, I would figure out what to do with them!  After staring at them for months, I finally figured out how to make them work - make them into a HUGE and STUNNING necklace!  This necklace is full of reused chains, repurposed bracelets, reused vintage beads and one repurposed earring which is part of the dangling centerpiece in the bottom bracelet.  Not only does it all work well together, it also hangs perfectly!  And for those of you who dabble in jewelry making, you all know how frustrating it can be to make necklaces lay correctly!  This one did it on its own!  I've been wearing it over and over again over a white shirt and can't get enough of it!  Enjoy!

Nice upcycling! I like the look of "statement" necklaces but my chest makes a "statement" of its own.. *cough  Roll Eyes

But I can see where this would look cool on a white tee, nice job
