This was a necklace I made a few years ago...
It featured vintage chain and a variety of beads...but for the focal piece I actually recycled a gold bamboo shaped bracelet.
I wanted something bold and I really liked the texture of this bracelet.
Sometimes using components in unexpected ways or not as they are originally intended can make for a more interesting finished design. Poke around and see what you might already have that can be reused or blended into a new style.
It gives materials new life and stretches your imagination!
