First and foremost, I apologize for my pictures. They were taken with my DSi, which is sad, because it's actually better than my regular camera Undecided

I picked my favorite one for the teaser shot:) The color of the beads is actually a very light purple.

I found these at Charlotte Russe a few months ago and bought them intending to make each on look completely different from the next. My own little challenge for myself Smiley

This is the original necklace:

Here's the rest!

This one has a button hanging from chain in the middle with roses painted black

This one has a glass pearl flower with gold leaves, and a thin, gold chain.

This one has a vintage key glued to it and covered heavily in clear nail polish.

One of the 'stones' (they're really a speckled plastic) that I removed was made into a pin, painted a lighter, super sparkly green color and adorned with shells I collected this summer on vacation to Florida. I may add lace to the back.

The ropes are painted black, and I also painted flowers on the 'stone', and coated it with nail polish. I use a lot of nail polish in crafts, lol.

I still have a few of the greenish teal 'stones' left to do fun things with, but I'm pleased with how much I got out of this $3 purchase:) I find projects so much more satisfying to think of how much I didn't spend on them:P

Let me know what you think!

I second that! These are so cute, and look totally professional. I also use a lot of nail polish in my crafts, so don't sweat it. Great job!

Never underestimate the power of suggestion.

I am interested in personal swaps for fabric and quilting squares. PM me if you're interested!
