A couple of months ago my sister-in-law gave me a box of costume jewelry that she had picked up at an estate sale. I've taken apart everything that is made of beads to reuse in other projects. Some of the other elements take a bit longer for me to decide how to use them. This necklace is a combination of a gold colored chainmaille, a very large earring, some hammered and pierced galvanized sheet metal, and three quartz crystals. The result was kind of a funky, glitzy/industrial look. I had fun with the challenge of recycling the random bits and pieces to make something different from the original style. Welcome to my laboratory....Bwhaaaaa haaaaa haaaa!
