Sometimes a favorite piece of jewelry needs an update. That was the case with this necklace. I still liked the stones, but, the gold-plated links were beginning to tarnish.
I took the necklace apart to save the stones and after some searching found these metal pieces that I thought would make a nice combination.
Using a basic stringing technique with white natural silk thread (size 8) and gold-tone findings I was able to get to work on a “new” necklace.
And here’s the final product. I actually like it more than the original necklace and already have worn it a few times.
