|The Remade Piece, a real showstopper and a more cutting edge design!|
Left is pictured another example of a piece of jewelry that just wasn't doing well on Etsy...in a word, it was BORING. It was simple and elegant, but not unlike many thousands of other pieces offered by other sellers for much less.
So, back to the drawing board, I took it apart and redesigned the cocktail length into a more choker or bib type, then added the graduated pieces as charms instead of to the single length.

Balance is all important in designing a necklace like this, if you put too many pieces on one side, it may look OK, but the necklace will be constantly sifting to the heavier side, making of a very unhappy wearing experience.
|The finished design, beautiful!|
|A matching charm bracelet!|
After all, this is a very original and unique piece, it would be very hard to accessorize and you may loose a sale because a customer has nothing to wear with it to coordinate.
I always list my matching components separately so they are an option and may very well be and extra sale, this way the customer has choice and I have more variety and options in my listings.
|And... of course, earrings!|
You also will have learned a thing or two about making jewelry and the latest trends, so don't be afraid to give that old piece a new shine by taking it apart and giving it a new lease on life!
By the way, this new piece is offered in my Etsy shop HERE, along with the matching bracelet and earrings.
Here is another necklace I remade earlier this year, the article on rebuilding it is HERE.
