My Homemade Handmade Blue Bead Choker with a Mix of Vintage and Costume Beads

Choker with Unusual Color Patterns, Handmade with Vintage Beads and Costume Beads

I had a vintage necklace fall apart, which is where the periwinkle blue round beads came from. The necklace was vintage from a thrift store. Instead of abandoning the beads to brokendom, I was all "slow fashion" even though no one had heard of that because it was 2008 and we were all just poor ebcause of the Recession. So I made a new necklace.

The turquoise leafe beads, red round cornered rectangle beads and lime green spacer beads are all from the craft store.

How on earth did I come up with this color pattern? They fell to the bottom of my craft bag! And I was like "I like this mix of bright and pastels."

I wore them with other light blue accessories. It's how I pepped up one of my lovely Little Black Dresses in a mixed print plus size pin up style outfit
