Here are some before and after pictures of a tired and worn vintage costume pearl necklace I restyled into total fabulousness! I loved the old style of the pearl baubles, but the worn and crumpled pearls had to go... Now the entire necklace is refreshed with new grey pearl beads and silver head pins. The old, vintage chain and findings were polished up a bit and recycled. And, voila (as my nine year says), a newly retro pearl statement necklace!
|Old, crumbling pearls had lost their luster...|
|New pearl beads and head pins, elbow grease, and lots of time later.|
