The faux pearls in this bracelet were upcycled from two different broken necklaces that were given to me to add to my stash. I believe that the beads are glass coated to look like pearls, and I was quite lucky that the pearls from both necklaces matched very well. The colour is a warm rich cream that makes me think of old strings of pearls. The only thing I added was a new silver plated magnetic catch, and the stringing material.
The length of this bracelet is 8 1/2 inches opened with an interior circumference of 7 1/2 inches approximately when closed.
Sometimes when people are having a clear-out they remember that I make jewellery, and without my asking them, they present me with a bag of old, out of fashion, and sometimes broken jewellery. If I can, and if it's an item they love, I will mend the broken jewellery and return it to them. But more often than not, end up taking it apart and adding it to my stash.
One time these bits and pieces came in very handy when I ran a workshop.. They provided an interesting selection for the participants to choose from.
Recently I received more odds and ends of broken and unloved jewellery, and decided I would try and upscycle some of it.
The thing I've noticed while taking apart these pieces of jewellery is the amount of intricate beading and wirework that has gone into making some of them. Some of these are made with miniscule beads that are really fiddly to work with, and it's truly humbling to think of the time and effort someone, somewhere, put into making them.
