Something Old, Something New BBA Team

The BBArtisans team challenge is to create a new piece with old and new items. 

I upcycled the black beads from a necklace I purchased at a thrift shop. The white round beads, I received from a bead swap. 

Crocheted necklaces are fun for me to make, and I needed something black and white. 



It was going to be a bracelet, but I wanted a necklace, so I added some chain. I may have figured out how to make these finally - there need to be more beads or chain around the neck so the necklace is comfortable. The crochet wires are not. 

I sold the purple and gold wire crochet necklace a few weeks ago. 



I'm taking a survey for the upcoming holiday season. 

Do you like the mix and match bead size and style? Or do you prefer the beads to be more similar in size/?

Comment here and I'll come up with a new design soon.
