I had a store- bought multi-strand necklace that I liked but only wore with one shirt and even at that it looked too heavy for me so I pulled out my jewelry pliers and chopped it up!
I pulled off all the beads and remade it into a long necklaces that I wear with my solid brown or black turtleneck sweaters. I did not use all the beads so I might make a coordinating bracelet.
P.S. Last night, I finally got a freezer/fridge although the night before I was locked out of my apartment for 2 hours so it has been an ordeal!
