Repairing and re-purposing

I can go weeks or months without making a piece of jewellery. I don't know why it happens - and I certainly don't like it - but it does. What helps me get back on track is turning my focus on other things  - like repairing or re-purposing old pieces.  

A dear friend handed me the necklace below with a request to please 'save' it. The repair work is pretty simple - I need to re-string the beads and maybe replace the clasp and some of the beads. It's nice when I can help out a friend and make her happy with just a half-hour of my work.
