The Compliment Necklace
I found the square rhinestone piece of this necklace in a bag of junk jewelry given to me by a friend. This is a weighty little square and has TONS of sparkle. I am not sure if it was a broken pin or earring, but I fell in love with it when I laid eyes on it. In fact, I have held on to it for years. I would come across it every once in awhile and say, "I really would like to do something with this, but, what?". Finally, I added a mix of purple pearls and black czech beads for a necklace chain and kept it extremely simple with a magnetic clasp. This necklace really isn't for sale...since I LOVE TO WEAR IT. Plus, it gets me plenty of compliments. This is more of a marketting piece for me, since people want to then talk about it after they ask me where I got it. I love to tell them, "I made it"!
