It’s fun to think out of the box! When I found this necklace stuffed in the bottom of a junk jewelry jar I got at Goodwill, no fabulous ideas popped into my head how to give it an update.
After a while the idea occured to me this necklace could use a pop of color. I could have used E6000 to attach colorful beads to the center holes, but I was curious if colorful wires could be attached, would they stay in place?
I have this cool collection of 20 gauge copper colored wire so I threaded a bead on the wire and attached it to the necklace jump rings.
A twist of the wire with my small needle nose pliers made the wires fit snug on the flat gold rounds and they stay in place. YAY.
I love the pop of color from the mardi gras beads plus the colorful wire. I can wear this necklace to brighten an outfit, but since the update is removable if I get a new idea they can be easily removed.
