Repurposed Chandelier Crystals



Last year we started doing a little re-decorationg at work  
My boss took all the crystals off the chandeliers in the dining room
.......a 5 gallon bucket full
  
Guess who she gave them to??

ME

Today I decided it was time
to take a break from crocheting 
and do a little soldering

I really need the practice

Here are some of those
crystals made in to necklace pieces


Some are flat backed 
and smooth on the front


And some are faceted on both sides


I think tomorrow 
I will pull out the jewelry stuff
and make some necklaces


 But probably not 
until I crochet a little bit!

  2. Oh I LOVE old crochet books. I buy them every time I see them at thrift stores. I think my my favorites are the granny square ones from the 70's.
