Yesterdays bargain...dismantled!!!!




Take one bargain necklace, attack it with some wire cutters, and voila! 25 little sparklers!



I chopped through each of the little jump rings that held the necklace together with my wire cutters, tossing the chain into my bead box as it may come in handy one day!



And i was left with 25 little embellishments



i wanted to use the flowers as brad spacers for flower embellishments but some of the holes were a little small, but the flowers were no match for my cropadile!!



before and after cropodile pics! they punched through suprisingly effortlessly (if thats a word!)



Here is how they look used as brad spacers.........



they seem to fit both modern and dainty designs........


Hope you like them and you are able to grab a cheap necklace if the mood takes you

Hugs

You never cease to amaze me Lisa. I LOVE what you have done with them. I bought a necklace from Primark thinking I would do the same but I can't bring myself to chop it up! *Ü* Thank you for sharing your talents. ~Glen~

Thanks to your post on UKS about these necklaces I managed to get the last 2 in my local Asda today. I haven't taken them apart yet, but now that I have seen what you have done with them, I can't wait to have a play with them :)
Love the bargains you got from the bootfair as well, especially those canvas bags. Hope you put a decorated one on here. x
