Not sure if this is in the right place so apologies if it's not!

After I finished my project for the Junk Jewellery Swap 2 I was inspired - stayed up all night giving some old broken jewellery new life...

The first one is beads from a cheap old necklace (H&M I think) which was threaded on elastic which obviously snapped. Not sure if you can see it from the pictures but 8 of the beads are slightly larger and more pinkish, they're from a broken necklace I got from my grandma's collection. The closure is new.





Second one is made mainly from a necklace from grandma, some glass bits - just added parts of a broken chain to a part of the necklace. I know the closure isn't centered but I quite like it Tongue



The next necklace is parts of the same necklace I took the chain above from. I put all the beaded parts together and added some chains to the bottom.





And a bracelet to match...



They're not very special but I quite like them!

The pearl necklace is pretty  Smiley I'm a sucker for classic design.
The beaded necklace is spot-on for the chain trend without being over the top. And since I work with metal & beading, I know it must have taken FOREVER to make and link all of those sections.

Well done!

I really like how the first necklace incorporates different beads that are subtly different. It makes for a more interesting design. Overall, great reconstructions of some old pieces of jewelry!
