I was recently given a handful of "re-dos" by an acquaintance friend. She picked up a boat load of great deals on slightly broken and/or mismatched costume jewelry at a local department store. The deals were phenomenal and she and I pondered over how to fix and recreate these finds into something she would wear with pleasure! The first in a string of recreations was a badly strung set of brightly colored beads! It needed help. I found an example of a simple lariat that used bold accent colors to make it a real stunning piece. Here she is...the first in this series of upcycled jewelry for Miss Nanci!
