My New Altered Necklace

I finished this necklace last week. My inspiration was a couple of necklaces I saw in an antique mall the day after New Years Day. I just wanted to get out and do nothing, so what better place to go than an antique mall. I saw several things to inspire me. Now I just need some time to do them. The necklace at the mall had a lot more charms than mine. It looked as tho it might be to heavy, and it did not have earrings. One was in pink and the other in purple. I LOVE PURPLE, but I did mine in pink. I love the light pink crystals. I am always finding jewelery at garage sales and I can't keep from buying it. I have a LARGE stash of jewelry. So this necklace was made from my stash. One thing about it, IT IS ONE OF A KIND. I hope you enjoyed looking at one of my creations.

Have a wonderful and blessed day!

Hi Pat, it's great to meet a new friend from the Metroplex. I'm with you - who needs the malls when you can go to a good estate sale! I often think of all the opportunities I would have for great finds in close proximity if I were still in Dallas. Out here in the boondocks, it's fewer and farther between with more driving involved.

Pat, your work is just beautiful. Love the altered necklace and am completely charmed by all those roses, both painted and clay. I look forward to seeing more!
