Garage Sale Necklace Makeover
"This necklace makeover was fun to do using up a collection of mismatched beads in my “sort these beads” box. Now that I used up a lot of them….I have less beads to sort! LOL. I got the necklace at a garage sale recently for $2.00 and wondered how hard it would be to attach rows of beads. Turns out it is easy using long length head pins. I didn’t like the existing chunky chain, so I swapped it out for some pretty beaded chain. "
