    Found the nice 1930's red and cream beads online (in pic 3 top) but I didn't like the redo. African glass tube beads and a 70's barrel clasp....sorry, not right - nice, but not for me. I looked at one I did a few years ago (which I didn't like either) and tearing that one apart remade the necklace to a longer, more wearable 19" length. The glass zig-zag beads are probably Czech or "Bohemian", ditto smaller 7mm faceted red and cream. Tiny size 15 faceted steel-cut beads from an old 1920's damaged purse and a very nice bronze ribbed screw clasp - I think I like the result. I always have to leave my creations alone for awhile before I like them.

    Today I have a big report due for work and in typical Val mode, I am not doing the report until the final drastic moment.... Ha - no this redo took longer than a few hours today. It was last rainy Saturday's project.

    Hope you enjoy my Valitization - that's not easy to spell Kyra....

      Fantastic redo! It is now so you :-)
      And, sshhh, I'm awful at stringing :-)

      I think you did a great job.

      Thank you Nicefice for first love!

      Thnks Kyra - yes it's me now. I use the shaped bead board or a shoebox lid w/fabric pad to keep everything from rolling away. Still happens :). Getting the balance right takes me a long time. Color, sizes, where it sits on the neck....

      Bonnie - thank you! It's just a basic string-redo, yet takes some time to DO right....

      Thanks also to aura for your fast love.

      Cruising through your collection this morning..when I came across this, I literally said out loud, “OH!!” No one heard me but my cat, Ha!
      I love these, it’s the red!

      WAS this 5 years ago? Sorry pebble that I didn't respond to your comment! Oh boy, now I haven't had to write a report in 5 months because of Covid....But, I'm going back to work 9/8!!

      Eileen - pretty hard to find these glass beads now. Isn't it something, gorgeous old combination of glass shapes. Looking at it again today, I love the redo.

      Thanks to everyone from then to present who loved this: Nevada, Ted, Mike, Aim, Malkey!
