Behold the aftermath of necklace modification. Is the result good, bad, or somewhere in the middle? Whatever the case, let's take a look at the process!
I have an assortment of Swarovski crystals (high-quality Austrian glass bicone beads) that I had accumulated over the years. I also have some copper eye pins that closely match the same tone as this pre-manufactured piece.
I stacked a series of beads on a pair of eye pins, making sure I kept them in the same order. The result and assemblies were about an inch long, perhaps as much as 3 centimeters for those of you in the metric world.
I didn't think the necklace would drape properly with the added length, so I also took a few links out of the chain on either side of the pendant to reduce it back toward its original length again. The result is the image that started this post.
What do you think? If you're interested in purchasing this spring-themed sparkly piece with HBD, comment below before the post pays out!
If you'd rather complain that the result does not suit your aesthetic sensibilities, or this kind of jewelry modification is not up to your standards, that's fine, too. Jerk. XD
