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?

I have boxes of vintage piano music.  Some as old as 1890's!  PM me if you'd like some!

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

Very nice! Old jewelry is the best craft supply ever.
