Refashioning an old necklace

The latest bag of 'broken jewellery' that I bought from a 2nd hand shop included a copper necklace, that was really lovely but included embroidered elements that were very badly unravelling. So I took the whole thing apart, combined it with beads from my stash and made this long bookmark, suitable for a coffee table book

 This bookmark is now in the Crafty Green Poet Etsy shop, you can see it here.
I also made two pairs of these earrings, using elements of the same necklace along with beads from my stash and brand new nickel free silver earring hooks. The earrings hang about 5cm / 2 inches long.

These earrings are in the Crafty Green Poet Etsy shop here.
