This is a picture of a bracelet that I made about a year or so ago. If you read my blog back then you probably remember it. I really liked the bracelet and all the stones, the only problem with it was that it was too big for my wrist and everyone else's wrist that I knew. I kept it around and would put it on every once in a while and wish it were smaller, but I couldn't bring myself to take it apart and leave out anything.
Yesterday I finally got out the scissors and cut it apart. Here is what it recycled into.........
A bracelet and a necklace!!!
For the bracelet I use the four small components.
And the large stone became the pendent for a dutch spiral rope.
I tried a new (to me) closure out of the same beads as the rope.

It was a fun project and I'm sure I will be a lot more happy and get a lot more wear out of this recycled set than the too big bracelet.

  1. It is always difficult to cut something apart that took so long to make, but I think you did the piece justice. The new design is just beautiful.
