Jewelry Rehab

This is a little jewelry project that I started back in May.  It's still a work in progress.

These are the beads from a bracelet that was given to me by one of my college roommates a few years ago.  About a year ago, my little niece got her hands on it and broke the elastic that was holding the beads together.  Instead of freaking out about it, I decided to make a necklace out of them.  

After my mother gave me a pack of elastic cord that she found amongst some of her junk, I came up with this.

It needed more beads, but I didn't have the funds at the time to get any.  This put work on the necklace to a halt.  Around late November, I realized that my old key chain had some dark blue beads that I could use to fill out the necklace some more.  So, I took the key chain apart and added them to what I had so far.  The necklace was starting to look better, but it still needed more beads.  Again, work on it was halted. 

 I was going to post a picture of what the necklace looks like currently, but my digital camera sucks up battery life like a sponge.  That will be a blog post for another day.
