Earrings and Pendants to Necklaces

I found some old jewelry while I was foraging through Goodwill with my daughter.  These are my favorites.

One is an old earring and the other two are pendants, I think.  I thought all would make good necklaces.

I added rings to each piece.

I cut a length of chain for each pendant from some bulk chain I keep around for rosary repair.  The two larger pendants got longer chains and the round one got a shorter chain.  I had to add a clasp to the shorter chain but the other two could slip over my head.

They turned out nice and very wearable.  My daughter informed me the one in the middle is NOT her favorite but, turns out, she's not the one wearing it so it doesn't much matter!

If I do it again:

I wish I had a bigger variety of chain to choose from.  This chain looks nice but is a tad plain.  I'm a tad plain, though, so it probably is for the best!
