Taking apart old necklaces, to make new necklaces

I love being able to take old necklaces apart and re-use the beads in new pieces. Last year I made a necklace with all of the beads at the bottom of this necklace, lots of beads, so many beads! It sat in one shop for several months and didn’t sell, it went to the markets and nearly sold, it went back to another shop and didn’t sell…so yesterday I brought it home with me, I took it apart this morning and I used four of the beads in this new necklace. This new necklace may face the same challenges, people may not like it enough, it may not ever sell, but I loved making this new necklace, and some times THAT part of the process is what matters the most!
