I saw some really cute beaded ornaments at a store but didn't want to pay the high price for them.  So I went to a discount jewelry store and picked up a couple of beaded necklaces and made my own ornaments...and I love them!  I've made seven sets so far (only have pictures of two right now)!  I'm in love with making these ornaments and I love that they are made out of re-purposed beads Smiley





Let me know what you think of them Smiley

nice - thanks for an idea.  My DD is putting up her 1st tree in her college apt and these ornaments would be perfect.  I just can't part with any of my heritage type ornaments for a college apt.

They remind me of the fact in Victorian times, the woman of the house used to use her jewelry to decorate the Christmas tree.
I like the fact you used the chain links.
I tried it, and just strung mine on thread.

When I was out shopping today, I had to pick up some bags of broken beaded jewelry to make some more of these.
I want to make them all colored like yours are.

Sorry it's taken me so long to respond...but I love your ornaments!  They are so beautiful and classy looking.

Ooh, those are adorable! Do you have any tips for the jewelry-making newbie type of person?   Smiley
