Repurpose and Re-fresh

There are some pieces that I have a hard time taking apart. In the back of my mind I hope and think, someone out there will love it enough to purchase it.

When I do take a piece apart, I always try to come up with a way to repurpose or re-fresh some of the components.

This necklace is an example of repurposing and re-freshing a piece. It was initially listed with Red Hydro Quartz drops.

After removing the red drops and a few jumprings, I asked the piece "what do you want to be adorned with?". Yes I talk to pieces I'm working on. Often the answer is right in front of me.

This time it was this gorgeous chunky Turquoise Pendant with Pyrite Matrix!

Have you ever seen a Robin's egg? It's the best way I can describe this yummy shade of Turquoise.

So here's to repurposing and re-freshing!
