How to turn a Charm Necklace, into a One of A Kind (OOAK) repurposed vintage bead necklace

Another way to use up a broken vintage bead necklace is to incorporate the beads in to a modern necklace to add a bit of vintage charm.  You can see this in the stunning one of a kind handmade re-purposed vintage necklace made from beads from vintage necklaces below. It is such a great look for summer. The necklace measures 40 inches so it is long.

So why buy vintage?
For me vintage means quality, it means it was made with care and attention that mass produced cannot match.

For me it means history. Whatever the item it has been pre loved, it has been pre cherished. It is a key to the past with every item having it’s own history and every vintage item particularly the older pieces have a beautiful romanticism about them, quite often we won’t know the history of each item, but it is easy to be swept away to past times .

For me it means individualism. Most items are one offs or limited finds. There are so many different styles and beautiful flourishes to vintage items that our modern mass produced items just cannot come close.
