Here is my effort at recycling and re-using for the latest Mumsnet Crafters Challenge. I took two bracelets 'donated' by Gingermonkey for recyling a while back ........
I took them apart and managed to make a few bits & bobs. I had to add a few seed beads and a couple of other beads & earwires - but here's what I came up with.
The orange beads are acrylic and quite kitsch but I rather like them & have used them in some funky earrings and a key fob. The green beads were really quite sweet and I made two pairs of earrings. In the green bracelet was something that looked a bit like turquoise chips (not sure if it's real or imitation) but I used them to make another pair of earrings.
The toggles I will definately use in the future, probably on bracelets as they are lovely and chunky.
