Recycle, Reuse, Redesign Project: Necklace

So today I made a necklace out of beads:

And out of the scraps of an old dress that I'm in the process of altering:

It was super easy, I just put the beads in an tied a knot after each one to hold them in place. It took maybe all of five minutes. The beads were from a broken necklace, and it was a good way to reuse some old beads and a tiny bit of extra fabric.

This is the finished product:

The question I have for the people out there who are maybe a little better at fashion than I am is do you think that the colors clash too much? How about the patterns? All in all though, it's a simple project and a good way to reuse broken jewelry!


  1. Looks good and I think the color combination is great. Keep up the great work!

  2. I am not a fashion specialist, but I think the color suits you! You are talented Sarah, and the idea of using a old dress fabric is really great :)!

  3. Thanks for the kind words! =)

  4. hi that actually looks real nice, does suit you real well. Lets see if I can try and make some thing like that :-)
