I first came upon this necklace by chance. I was trying to restring a shell necklace that I had purchased while in France. I wore it so often that after 2 years it finally gave out. Well, there was no way I could re-string it in the same way because I lost the important little clear beads to space it. I found that when I tried they clustered together, which I really liked, so I left it that way…. and then repeated it over and over again with vintage buttons in different
monochromatic color schemes. It’s a super fast and easy way to make unique necklaces for every occasion!
