Bracelet Remake

We have all broken a favorite piece of jewelry. That's what happens when you wear it all the time! This bracelet, or rather the old bracelet was gift. It was a knotted black pearl bracelet with the glitzy bow tie closure.  I thought about just restringing it exactly to the original design. Well, you can see I jazzed it up with a few beaded beads. It's better than new now!

As I contemplated the seed bead colors to use with this clasp it got me thinking that I should really look for garage sale or second hand shop jewelry I can disassemble for parts. 

There is lots of statement jewelry in today's fashion that can be bought, but that takes the fun out of solving the puzzle.
