Last night I realized I was in need/want of new jewelry. I have a ton of jewelry that I've made just sitting around waiting to be sold. But those pieces belong to someone else. I wanted make something that would belong to me.
I decided to pull out a bunch of old pieces of jewelry that I don't wear anymore (and that my friend gave me because she doesn't wear them anymore) and see what I could come up with.
Considering my options, the possibilities seemed endless. Most of these pieces have way too much going on. I really wanted something simple. So I started taking things apart. These earring were the first to be disassembled.
Using just the heart, the earring hook, the jump loops, and the orange bead I put together these adorable things!
Way better, right?! That was just too easy though. I still had all these necklaces just waiting to be torn apart. Once I made the earrings, I started to get a picture in my mind of what sort of necklace would go well with them. So I began removing the beads from this necklace.
Then I attached all the beads to one jump loop.
After that I tied a ribbon to the gold chain that used to be my grandmother's.
And finally I attached the beaded jump loop to the gold chain.
Today I have new earrings and a new necklace to wear and I spent zero dollars!
Also, I'm pretty much blonde now. What???
