Cameo Necklaces

  
Last time I caught up with my folks, they had been to their local community market and bought a bag of old brooches for me thinking I would create something new with them.

   
 
They are quite pretty aren’t they? I decided to start with a couple of the cameos, and make some necklaces with beads.

  For the blue one I chose a selection of pearl and blue beads, and connected them with some eye pins.
 Then I added some beads and a tassel to the cameo.

  
Connected to the beads with a jump ring, and the necklace was done!

   
 
For the orangey cameo I wanted a more random asymmetrical style, so I just collected a bunch of pretty beads, and again connected them with eye pins. I used some chain from a broken necklace and hung the cameo at the base.

   
 
Purty!!!!!!!
