What are you most proud of? I got the wire wrapping with headpins right after a while! The video instructions were really helpful for me. This project gave me a ton of practice as well since I wrapped every bead cluster.

What advice would you give someone starting this project? Just get some materials and try it. I was surprised how well my necklace turned out since jewelry making is pretty new to me.

Wow! Beautiful colors. To do all the pieces in the wire wrapping...I know that this was a time-consuming project! Great piece and great work-- lots of it!

Beautiful jewelry and wonderful idea. My mom loves thrift store finds and I myself can never find the things she does.

Thanks RamblingRose. Thrift stores can be a safari, that's for sure.

Lovely necklace--and fantastic color choices. It has great variety, yet is also very cohesive, too. Time-consuming no doubt, but it looks like a lot of talent and love went into this creation.

Thanks ladies! I still love this necklace and made matching earrings last year too.
