Necklace Redo Series! #1

I'm excited to bring you the Vintage Gwen Necklace Redo Series!!  Rissa at Hazel and Honeysuckle has inspired me!  She did a fabric flower series that you should check out!
While I was at Goodwill getting the picture frame for my picture frame tray tutorial I also picked up some necklaces.
These were $2 a piece.  Gonna give them a little umph!

I've already done one with a very old necklace and bracelet I had in my jewelry making supplies for my hairdresser back at Christmas...


For #1, I did something similar, here's the supplies:
Fabric flower
piece of felt
chain necklace
hot glue gun


I then removed the locket and the extender from the chain necklace. (Will save the locket for something else!☺) And then simply hooked the two necklaces together.


Put a line of glue down the back of the flower and laid the joined necklace on top.  I then put a line of glue on top of the necklace.


Then I glued the felt circle over the necklace.  You could also use a piece of the same fabric.


And that's it!! A simple pretty necklace!

Thinking about doing a giveaway at the end of the series....your choice of a redo!!
What'd ya think?

GREAT job, Jennifer! I am just starting to get the desire to jewelry craft! I don't sew, so I am having fun trying the non-sewing crafts! I love the mix of the pearls, chain and flower . . .
