I love the color coral.
I mentioned I wanted a coral necklace and my mother-in-law gave me one of her mother's necklaces to use as a project. I contemplated keeping it as is (it's so funky!), I wore it a few times but then the string broke I decided that I could take it apart. My mother-in-law said the Egyptian style was popular at the time. I used the pretty blue beads to make this necklace. Here's the original:
The coral colored beads were almost the exact size of candy Runts. I haven't had Runts in years, they sound so good now!
I made this necklace with the clasp and gold beads from the original necklace. I had bought a strand of small coral beads to lengthen the other necklace I made, and had just enough for another necklace!
