    I bought for cheap an old amethyst graduated beads two rows necklace, in need of restringing.

    You know I collect brooches, and often wear them on a necklace...

    I restrung the two rows in one, without clasp, the biggest beads at the end.

    It is big and long, 75cm or 29.5".

    Any convenient brooch will act as clasp and front ornament, leaving the uneven lenght ends dangling :-)

    I had this made in the past with out of fashion graduated salt water pearls, and I was always complimented for having the idea!

    Glad to share this "trick" with you, jewellery maniacs ;-D
