Jewelry makeover part 1

Esfera jewelry pearl and lampwork bead necklace

How about freshen up some old, unsold, designs? That’s what I thought, rummaging through my collection of handmade jewelry. Some designs could do with a nice makeover.

 

 

 

 

 

Jewelry makeover

This is the first design I have taken apart:

Esfera jewelry pearl and lampwork bead necklace

I love pearls and the combination with the beautiful lampwork beads from Grace and vintage brass is gorgeous. But somehow it did not work in this necklace.
So a bracelet it became.

I have knotted the pearls on brown silk. I left the lampwork beads the way they were, as I loved the combination with the antiqued copper wire.
And I must say, I’m very pleased with the result.

While re-designing, the gorgeous beads of Blueberribeads kept on waiving at me: “please, create something with us”. So of course, I had to listen. I picked three gorgeous beads of the set, some pearls and bodhi prayer beads.

I liked the effect of the knotted pearls, but in this design I wanted to use a gorgeous fuchsia dyed natural hemp. But without having a bead reamer, I just didn’t manage to string freshwater pearls on the cord. So I used Swarovski crystal pearls instead.

Both bracelets can be bought in my Etsy shop.
 

I love those bracelets!

Those are some beautiful bracelets, especially this one = "boho chic bracelet with artbead from Blueberribeads". I was just browsing around to find a new style of jewerly that I like and I think I fell in love with these bracelets. These bracelets are beautiful, they would make excellent gifts.
