out of the wreckage
A few days ago I told you about the neighbor kid who smashed his mom's car into our tree, and the beads I made out of the broken glass. Scroll down if you missed it. I took it another step here with this necklace. The entire strand is made of auto glass, and the heart is hollow. I filled it with 3mm cubic zirconias. Well over 100 of them, I guess. Then I strung it all together with sterling silver and white Swarovski crystals. I'll put it up for sale soon, but not until I get a chance to wear it. A necklace, just like a car, needs a good test drive.
If you want to make your own necklace, I have some similar sets of beads on my website this week. Hollow hearts with matching spacers. And not all of them are auto glass... I still use fancy Italian glass too. Visit the BeadShop and see! And if you're interested in this particular necklace, drop me a note. A good offer might just take it home.
