I made these earrings from a necklace and 4 uber ugly bracelets.
The first one was made from chains from several necklaces, and glass beads:


These beads were taken from two matching bracelets, done with cheap twine I picked up in a large bunch of jewlery:



These beads came from the same box, again, two ugllly bracelets:



same source, two different earrings from one necklace:


This set was made from beads I had in my stash, so not really recycled, just thought I would throw them in.

  C&C would really be appreciated. Nancy

I love doing that with old necklaces, too.  I've got some from my grandma that I get alot more use out of as earrings.  The last pair look really interesting.  Are they balls made from chain somehow?

Scholars and artists...differ most importantly in the way their knowledge is come by.  Scholars get theirs with conscientious thoroughness along projected lines of logic; poets...stick to nothing deliberately, but let what will stick to them like burrs where they walk in the fields.

Hi Dulcet. The last pair are beads made with wire, they look a bit like loose string.  I both them on EBay quite a while ago, so I can't remember where I got them.  Bummer, cos I'd buy more if I could, they are really pretty in real life. Nancy
