If you've got a less than stylish necklace or one that you have simply grown tired off, take it apart and restring it! Many of the beaders who come to our workshops do so. Sharon brought in the orange coral beads on a necklace which so desperately needed a new touch.

As you can see, after much rummaging in Widgets' Beads (Debbie)'s extensive collection, she came up with a winner using banded agate, turquoise chips and pewter beads. I've seen red with turquoise before but teaming it with orange is also delightful!

I've sometimes gone back to an earlier creation and decided I didn't like it anymore and have restrung it in a different way. Have you?

  1. I think the option to take almost anything apart that you've previously made is great! Yes I've done it!

  2. I did it, too, for myself and others. Not only to make a more stylish necklace, but also to repair a broken clasp or change an old, maybe brittle thread before it breaks. That's one of the best things in making your own jewelry: redesign a piece to your gusto.

  3. I restring, redesign, fix, etc., as well...I like her necklace, very nice!!!


  4. Beautiful necklace! And fabulous topic. I also just received a necklace, earrings and bracelet from a customer who wishes for me "update" the pieces to be a more cohesive set and more "modern".


You're AWESOME! Thanks for the comment and feedback. You do make a difference on my blog!
