Hi everybody!!! This post is for the Hoarder's Blog Hop set up by the Wonderful Lori McDaniel Anderson!!!
When she posted this I just rolled my eyes at me and said this is one I need to enter cause I have TONS of Hoarded beads!!! The "I will do this one later", the "what was I thinking", the "OMG [hand over eyes]", LOL.
So I went through all of my beads and this box and that box and on and on and on...and finally decided on this set of beads and things.

I apologize for the pictures but I am still using my phone...Blah!!! This Necklace is full of charms and jaspers and crystals and mother of pearl.  These are things I use all the time, but
I put them together with chain I assembled with repurposed  links from 2 different chains and ribbons form a repurposed necklace.


The center piece, even though it is not in the center is a beautiful Jasper that I got at a bead show a couple of years ago!!! These I don't want to let go of because they are my Favorites!!!





The rest of these pictures are of all of the components and how it looks over all!!! I had a wonderful time doing this and got a great necklace out of it!! One that I would wear and hate to sell [I probably will sell it but...]  Hope you have fun Blog Hopping!  Thank you so much for Hopping by!!! Have a great and Blessed Day!!!

Jaspers and M.O.P and Bronzy metal charms.




Hand Painted word charm, the jasper and some charms

  1. What a great eclectic piece. Your love of jasper certainly comes through, and I agree, you will have a hard time parting with this one.

    Love the necklace, you were in earthtone heaven with this one!

    BTW I was wearing the light blue bracelet yesterday and my mom spotted it so I will have to make her one from those 'jessie James" beads or it may end up as community property!

  25. I love your design! And I love that you're like me and don't always put the largest bead in the middle! Excellent.

    I apologize for being so late to hopping around -- I'm getting better but still can't sit up for long hours at a time like I usually would.
