White Necklace Re-done

I was underwhelmed yesterday with the result of my necklace.  Sometimes what I envision doesn't translate 100%.  Not quite happy with the chain in the design.  I have a fix, probably get it done in a year or so.

So I still wanted a white necklace.  I bought a Monet necklace at a flea market a few months ago with white enamelled filigree beads. I took the necklace apart, cleaned the beads with a toothbrush and baking soda paste, and restrung some of them back on the original chain and spacer beads. I also had a (supposedly) vintage glass shankless West Germany flower button that I glued to a brass flower.  I am very happy with the result.
