My new Venture!

I have been having lots of fun with this new found craft. I have been remaking jewelry into fun shabby vintage look long chokers. I have crafted about 12 of these necklaces in the last couple of weeks. I have been having so much fun gathering old pieces including 1 leftover earring, pendants, charms etc. I lay it all out and rework chains and then I will do some beading too. I can't get enough of it. I have had fun looking in antique and thrift shops for old pieces of jewelry, and have come up with some really neat looking stuff to keep, give as gifts and list in my Etsy shop. I would love to hear some feedback on this stuff. I don't know if my pricing is good, but I kind of went by the time put in, how old some pieces were, and the amount of findings I had into them also. I might be changing the pricing a bit. I will see.
These first two pieces are the ones I will keep. Both of them have sentimental value in them.
