Necklace remake

My friend Yuko was invited to a wedding last weekend and she had asked me to remodel her long crystal necklace short to fit her dress. It was a fun project to remake an existing accessory and great to hear that she looked fantastic and had recieved compliments from her friends at the wedding!

This is the original necklace. It's a simple crystal ball necklace that would look pretty on a nice summer dress. 

She sent me a picture of the dress that is black with spaghetti straps with a big beige swirl design in the front. So I made the single-strand necklace into 3 strands and made a choker that ties with a black ribbon at the back.

But I also wanted to make something a little more special so what I made is a brooch with black and gold ribbon with an acrylic design.

What's special about this brooch is that it can also be attached to the choker like this.

Of course, it can be worn separately and still look quite charming!


  1. I'm so fortunate to have a sweet friend with great taste. I will cherish my new necklace for the rest of my life!
    So looking forward to my next occasion to wear it with the cool brooch. Love Yukoxxx

  2. I'm so happy that I worked on this so thank you too! You looked really great!

  3. in my opinion you're insanely talented. tmk
