The Long and Short of It

Long multicolor bead necklace handmade from recycled vintage beads
I've been playing around with my latest haul of vintage beads. You know, following my patented process of putting things together and tearing them apart until I decide I like it. Well, I like this one, a lot. I like it short, as sort of a collar length statement necklace:

And I really like it long too:

The problem is that I don't have enough of these exact beads to make two necklaces. (What?! Tragic, I know.) But, ingenuity is born of conflict. (Ooh, is that a quote? Nope, googled it. It's all me.) So, I came up with an adjustable design that looks cool from the front and back, long or short.

I'll be field testing it for the next few days (such grueling work), but you can look forward to a slight variation of this necklace in the shop soon!
