This is the necklace that almost never was…. because the base of it was a flimsy inexpensive plate necklace. I was sorting a jar of jewelry into “keepers” and “toss it” and it was in the toss pile.
It is more fun than a barrell of monkeys to sort through these Goodwill jars of mismatched and junk jewelry!
The fact that the slice is lightweight was a plus, because it didn’t add much weight to the final makeover.
Step One: Gather all the pieces and clean them gently in soapy water to remove all oils and dirt.
Step Two: Use wire snippers to remove the backs on each piece. If you have never tried removing an earring back you will be amazed how easy it comes off.
I use these snippers (or wire cutters) and either snip off the earring back or latch on to the finding and apply torque and twist it off. SO EASY!
Step Three: Lay out your design to see if the parts will fit and if you have enough pieces.
Step Four: Secure each piece with a liberal dab of E6000.
I like how my necklace turned out! To think I almost tossed the necklace. WHEW that was a close one….teehee.
