Reconstructed necklace

My mom bought me this necklace many years ago. It is a chunky statement peace and I love it,  but unfortunately every time I wore it it cut into my neck so badly that I could not wear anything else for a while. I presented this problem to my friend, jewelry designer, Katie, the creative force behind  Kathryn Rebecca and we started a discussion on how to make the piece wearable. Before long Katie sent me some images containing her ideas and after some creative back and forth, here is the end result.

Katie removed a total of 6 discs from the necklace and included soft leather ties to the newly separated chain. The leather is soft and all of a sudden the necklace is very comfortable to wear.
She used two of the 6 rings and turned them into these fabulous earrings that she embellished with some gold coloured enamel paint.
