Recycled Necklace from a Belt! ** Lots To Do



I was talking to a friend yesterday who was telling me about a dress she has bought for a wedding next week, but she doesn't have any necklaces to go with it. Anyway, she told me what she fancied getting, but couldn't see how she would get the time to go shopping, so I decided to make this for her. It's a bit glitzy, a bit long and dangly - she wanted something beady that hangs really low, a bit 20's ish, I suppose, and she wanted it to have red, so I found a beaded belt thing that came with some clothes and never got used, added some red beads, changed it around a bit and came up with this! What do you think - she hasn't seen it yet, I just hope she likes it!!!

This necklace also fits in perfectly with the Lots To Do challenge this week which is "Recycle It"!!!
