I could probably make another column (are you groaning?) of all the things I've deconstructed and made over. It's a different kind of fulfillment when you take a finished piece and change it to your liking.
This is a necklace of my mother's. Neither of us like to wear really long necklaces. (I love to look at them and admire ladies who can pull off the look) She wants me to shorten it and make a pair of earrings.
I took a before picture, because I rarely do and she thought I should. Plus, I'd had the idea of photographing necklaces on hangers, in lieu of a mannequin, for a while. So, two birds with one stone. Now, to unmake it.
