I sorta made these both out of one necklace, but it's not "reconstructed" enough to put in the other board. So, anyway:

This is the original necklace that I wore once to a wedding and never again:


I then made a bracelet by first cutting out the flowers, then joining the chain bits, cutting off the extra bit and attaching some beads:


Stretched out:


I couldn't think of anything to do with the flowers, but the next day I got a cheap-looking keychain thing with a magazine. This is what I made from it, some extra beads and the flowers:


The leftover beads from the keyring:


Sorry, the pictures aren't very good quality.

And I wanted to ask: Do you think I should give the keychain to my mum too? Or is it a bit childish?

omg they are sooooo cute! but i think you should keep the green thing for yourself.
i really like some of the beads on the old keychain, you should use them for something!

Those are nice,
I was wondering tho, how do you connect all the beads together (let's use the last picture for example), i wanted to make a thing for my keychain, but i wasn't sure what to use to link them together... and do you have to use plyers or something to pinch the links in??
