From Earring to necklace


I promised last week that I would post a photo of the necklace I recently made. Well here it is! The pendant is a broken earring, to which I've attached a small silver hoop from a broken bracelet. I may eventually hang the pendant from a silver chain, but i quite like it like this.

Very pretty ~ love the color and shape. Perfect re-purposing! It is also a delight to visit and see pics of your part of the world :)

I think it is lovely just as it is and it fits in so well with your life style of recycling Juliet - very fetching.

I agree it looks more Gothic with the black lace. Iv'e got a similar singular earing only smaller, hope I haven't binned it. Great recycling Crafty

I think you made a winner here.

Good idea, it is a lovely necklace!

That is a brilliant idea and the original ear-ring is just my style.

I have an allergy to nickel and lead, so I can only wear silver. Even clasps can cause irritation at the back of my neck. It's a nuisance!

I love it on the black lace. Oddly enough I was going through all my old junky earrings yesterday thinking I wish I had the skill to do something with them. Perhaps I should take a class.

It makes a great pendant and a fab idea of reusing a broken piece of jewellery!

I also like to do this with single earrings. Why let them go to waste, such pretty things. Nice job on this, very pretty.

How lovely!

My daughter did a similar thing--I had given her earrings she loved, and, when she lost one, she made it into a pendant.

You smart girls!

That is so pretty Juliet. You have been very clever to recycle it. Gorgeous colour too.
