A few weeks ago, I sorted out my ‘jewellery’ draw. It consists of brightly-coloured bits of plastic, wood and fabric. A burglar would be VERY disappointed by its contents but, to me, it’s full of precious treasures!
There were a few things in there that I don’t wear any more, and others that I’ve never worn. So, I decided to do a bit of re-purposing. I took all the beads off the necklaces, and turned them into new ones. I’ve worn ALL of them since – so I’m glad I didn’t just chuck the old necklaces in the bin!
This one’s my favourite:
It’s just a few wooden beads, a few plastic beads, and a length of gingham ribbon. I love necklaces with ribbon closures, as I can wear them as long or as short as I like (depending on the neckline of the top I’m wearing).
Putting on my glittery head-scarf, looking all mystical, and gazing in to my crafty crystal ball, I see more jewellery-making projects in the not-too-distant future. Watch this space.....
