Remodelling Pink Quartz

Birthdays are special ... and so a friend's husband surprised her with a NeckSpice gift of remodelling 4 of her precious vintage necklaces.  We started working on the first one last night.  Gorgeous pink quartz from the 80s which have broken and are now in need of an update.  We are experimenting with inserting beaded and crystal beads so that the quartz have a modern statement.  Have a look at our progress...

We experimented with different beads in different positions
 and a number of clasps until we settled on a diamond encrusted magnetic clasp
 to give the new necklace a real lift...

As the length will not be as long as the original necklace...and we are adding
some beads...there will be enough pink quartz
to create a bracelet to complement the new NeckSpice creation, fresh, updated and groovy!!
