I love necklaces. I rarely go a day without wearing one.
Bracelets however I could live without. They are always in the way of getting on with things. I can't be bothered taking them on and off.
Recently while browsing in a charity shop, a sparkle caught my magpies eye. Little aqua faceted glass beads strung on a stretchy bracelet. As I said earlier, not really my cup of tea.
But the beads were so pretty I was persuaded to part with my pennies.
I had a plan. I snipped the elastic and released the beads. I found a sterling silver chain in my jewellery box and strung three beads on to it.
Et voila. A pretty new necklace and lots more sparkly beads to play with.
