Smile This is a severely damaged photo. Any point?

Hello there, I posted this in the Image Help section and someone suggested I post it elsewhere to see if I can get any good tips.

This picture (sort of) made it through Katrina. I'm attempting to restore it for a family friend because it is the last picture they have of their sister.

I've worked on this a few days now and sadly the end results are a little embarrassing. From more experienced members, is there any point in trying to fix this? Any advice, or tips on what to do?

I worked on some of the beads in the second photo, but from there I'm not sure where to start. I'm not a beginner, but I don't do this sort of work often and I've never dealt with an image this damaged.

Any help or advice would be greatly, greatly appreciated.

Thanks so much for taking the time to read.

Sorry about that. Both the links should work now, and I uploaded them to the site.

Thanks for trying to look anyway.

Hello Craig !

One question? Do you have the original photo? If so make a scanned copy of the photo and then post it again.
