Threads: Repurposing

I have a pile of old beaded jewelry my grandmother was getting rid of several years ago. I held onto it for the beads and clasps, and I’m finally doing something with it.

Beaded Jewelry

I already used a few beads and a wooden clasp that I absolutely love in these pieces:

The blue beads at the top of this blue and purble silk beaded necklace are repurposed from one of the old necklaces.

I used my favorite clasp in this orange silk necklace. I have one more clasp like this I’m holding onto and trying to figure out a good way to use it.

And now, here’s a fun piece a started yesterday. I think I’ll add in a strand of blue beads as well. I like the contrast of the materials.
