Fixing jewellery

When I recently bought the cheap bags of jewellery that I've already used to make this bookmark and this keyring, there was a pretty flowery necklace that at first I thought was in perfect condition. However, when I wore it, the flowers sort of bunched together in a strange way and then I noticed that there had obviously originally been other flowers in there to hold the whole design together. So I took out my jewellery making kit and set about seeing what I could do to repair it. I took out two of the flowers and made them into earrings and I think they look nice with the pared down new necklace design.

Hi Juliet!
Your Right! The earrings Do look nice with the necklace. I particularly like the balanced asymmetry of the necklace. Yup. :) m & jb (who wears a bright green "necklace" when she is outside)
