Anna brought to a beading party a necklace given to her by a friend. She liked it mainly because of the jade pendant. It really didn't have much else going for it except a few beads like the long cigar shaped bone-coloured beads and on a plain hemp string if I recall correctly.

So she took it apart and then added many more beads to make a rather eclectic necklace. She used smokey grey daggers beads and some red and white beads to great effect. She also added a matching dangle to original pendant. Now this necklace has pizazz! Way to go, Anna!

Revamping older pieces of necklaces are great ways to recycle good beads to make jewelry YOU like.
