I love going thru thrift stores and coming out with treasures. Like the coffee can filler with old buttons for $2. I found but name expensive name brand ones in there. I have single beads that are very old and very pretty, either crystal or glass that I hung into it i ever came across a way to use just one of a kind. Here it is. Thank you

Six minutes to make an upcycled necklace. Sign me up to make this! Ive always got some odd and end beads in my stash. I have collected them from either being leftovers from prior projects or from jewelry that has broken in the past and I cant bear to part with the parts. This is the perfect use for those.

This necklace is simple and sweet. It will only take minutes to make, but I could see this becoming one of my go-to necklaces.

This is great for like a quick and easy gift or something! I'm really excited to make this project because it's super fast and easy to wear, which is perfect because I feel like I never have any free time!

I love the simplicity of this necklace. Easy and pretty.
