I had one of those dollar store necklace and earring sets that I was not crazy about. I loved the beads, great purple color, nice weight to them, everything. But the necklace was set on multiple strands of fishing line and I didn't like the look. (I know I should have taken a before shot!!) And the earrings were one drop bead. Very plain, and barely showed up. So I decided to take the beads off and start over.
