Jewlery for Sale July

This necklace is an example of something that I had originally designed one way, but then changed out an element to what I feel was an improvement to the overall necklace.  What do you think?  Do you like it best as the original design, or the new style?
Original Style #1
When I originally designed with this found object that I created into a "I FIND JUNK" pendant, I thought it would be a quick sell.  Alas, it wasn't.  I was perplexed and wondered what it was that made it not sell?  I decided after further analyzing it that the hand wire wrapped chain on this design, was a bit too fancy and upscale for the rawness of the "I Find Junk" pendant.  Thus I decided to swap it out and turned it into two different design pieces.  See below.

Redesign #1
"I find Junk" Necklace
I love the delicate little Mother of Pearl childs octagon button with the "I find Junk" pendant, so kept those two elements together and teamed the on a patinaed silvertone long chain.  This piece is perfect for layering with other necklaces and recently sold at the French Flea shop in Anoka, MN, during the monthly four day occasional sale I sell at.

Redesign #2 
Gorgeous Neutral Bling Necklace
This focal was used to replace the original "I find Junk" pendant, which I feel is more fitting for the classiness that the rest of the necklace had going for it.  What do you think?  To see more of the detailing in this necklace you can check out a prior blog post of mine here.


  1. Well, that didn't take long, did it? I get finished reading about it and scroll down to see that red (sold) on them both. Congrats! I really do love how you redesigned them, you hit the daily double on this one!!

  2. A mi me gusta en las 2 versiones, para mi tu trabajo es estupendo.


I am so thankful you took the time to let me know what you think about what I write and for taking the time to share your thoughts. Thanks for stopping by and visiting my blog. :)
