a couple more necklaces

this time I'm going to share two examples of necklaces that I made/repurposed:


this was super easy - all I did was glue an accordion onto a round bail plate I bought at the craft store.


I think the plates are a great way to highlight little buttons or other vintage findings you might collect that you love but aren't sure how to use.

another little project I recently worked on started with a pair of screw back earrings I thrifted because I liked the look of the metal knots:


because I prefer shorter dangle earrings I separated one of the knots from each earring & added a lever back. then I took one of the remaining two knot pieces & turned it into a necklace:


quick & easy...my favorite kind of project!
