I was really pleased with the way this necklace turned out. The beads are all recycled from discarded or broken jewelry. The faceted black pendant and the 'cheetah' pendant are from two different damaged bracelets. The amber and black beads are from old necklaces. The clasp is also recycled. Each bead is wired separately and the wires joined to form this necklace. The coloring is very rich and classy.
