Jewelry Makeover III

I was never completely happy with the pendant on this necklace.  I wanted so badly to use that oddly shaped agate bead but just could think of a way to wrap it.  I’ll save it for a bracelet perhaps.  I found this beautiful agate (I think) pendant recently and decided to use it instead.  I also added some spiraled and woven wires for a hanger.  I like it better!

The original necklace

    Both beautiful pendants, but I know what you mean, perhaps the original pendant would look good in a choker style necklace. I think the new coils on the remake really add something; I do love your eye for detail.

    Thanks Jane! I think your suggestion of the original on a choker style necklace is great. I personally like to wear chokers but so many people have requested longer necklaces from me that I usually make them 20″ plus extension to 24″.
