"Do you remember, a few years back, heavy faux pearls necklaces were in? I’ve had one laying around for a while now. I decided to take the necklace apart and make a new, lighter version of a handle for my purse. Something chic and summer appropriate. After taking the necklace apart I thread each individual pearl through with a golden tone wire and then connected the individual pearls on a wire by making loops on each end of the wires."

How clever! I never would have thought of this myself. Such a great way to breathe new life into an old purse.

I love when a great idea just drops in to my lap. I have two old pearl necklaces that are in bad shape, broken and some pearls are etched. I can take them apart and make some very nice handles for my crochet purses. One in black would look ultra chic with a pearl strap.

Please share the pics! I'd love to see how the hand crocheted purse with a pearl handle turns out. I bet elegant and chic!
