No Celery Please – NYC Edition!

Crafty AND Repurposed!

Posted in Artsy Craftsy by noceleryplease on September 23, 2012

So at the Goodwill last time, I found a macramé / straw bag that had these adorable animal beads on it. Also, a bead belt that was mostly falling apart, but made of string and a bunch if really pretty green beads.

Neither of these things was something utile or in any way something someone would want in the state they were in.

BUT! I grabbed both of them.

This necklace / earring set is the result of removing the beads from the bag, stringing them along with some of the green beads form the belt… On a string taken out of the belt.

I thought all 5 animal beads was too much for a necklace, so I attached two of the little animals and made matching (well, complimentary, anyway – obviously they are not MATCHING animals) earrings.

The bag with the beads no longer all raggedy looking might also now be useful as a bag 🙂

Recycling rocks!
