From one thrift store necklace ($2) . . .
. . . came 2 . . .
I wasn't in love with the original necklace. It was a weird length and I just didn't really like the composition. But I did love the cobalt blue stones and the hammered gold pieces.
So I split it into 2 separate pieces, adding in a vintage brooch for necklace #1 and just a bit of chain to necklace #2.
Now 2 pieces that I do love!
