Repurposing old jewelry is so much fun.

I used Swellegant in the copper color to make this older gold leaf new again.

I found the glass heart in my collection of pieces to recycle and used a fire polished coppery colored bead and some copper wire for more embellishment.

  1. Beautiful necklace, Suzan, and a great renovation of older items. The black and copper heart looks spectacular on the copper leaf. Altogether a rich and unique Autumn necklace!

    Suzan, awesome design! I love to mix old with new. I even do it for my own jewelry…what doesn’t sell from 2 years ago I renovate into something different…then it sells.

  3. That came out very nicely.
