Bits and pieces

These are some loose pieces that I have come across over the years. I was thinking of adding some of the turquoise to the bench beads. The only reason I am thinking I might do this is because the beaded necklace already seems to have previously been modified. Am I right in assuming this? The way the clasp is soldered on seems amateur to me. I don’t know what to do with the coral or birds. Any suggestions or examples y’all can give me will be much appreciated. Any suggestions on what to use for stringing?

Here is an article from Rio Grande, you can also order the materials from them.
