Refreshing jewelry


I've been sorting through my jewelry boxes a lot lately and making some alterations of design or small refreshments. Take this lovely pendant for example. At the time I came into possession of two necklaces with similar pendants whose chains were getting rusty and broken. I had the chains replaced by thin cords. However, I wanted a change and more color (the cords were dark grey and black, respectively) so for this one I decided to crochet a chain and add a leaf or two for effect, oh yes, and some tiny flowers. Good thing with this is that I can change the chain anytime and add a ribbon instead if I need to adjust it to my current mood or selection of clothes


Talk to you later.

See? That's why it's such a shame to throw away broken necklaces or jewelry! Really love how you used those pieces again, you've just created a new fine piece of jewelry which is something very special to wear!

I love how you have reused pieces in a whole new way, it makes such a statement. Beautiful.

Such a sculptural statement necklace. How nice of you to give new life to the old pendants!

nice..crocheting with a metallic cord would give the same effect as a chain but much softer

Great idea, and the crocheted leaves and flowers match perfectly with the pendants, expecially with the bee with strass (that is lovely in itself).
Makes me think of spring even if here it's all grey and rainy...
