Coral Necklaces

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!


  1. How fun that you were able to get so many necklaces from the original. It's the gift that keeps on giving.
