What to do with Broken Costume Jewellery?
If you are anything like me, you have some broken costume jewellery taking up valuable real estate in your jewellery box.
Bits of this, pieces of that, things you've been meaning to fix for months or longer *eek!*... Well, it's action time! How about turning those broken bits into a new, one of a kind piece?
Check it out. A 'new' necklace just for me! Made from different necklaces, anklets and bracelets. I didn't buy anything for this project. I used existing clasps and jump rings to connect all the bits with a pair of needle nose pliers. That was it!
I think it turned out quite nicely. Mine is a simple design but you could make yours as elaborate as you like! Sorry the photos aren't the best this time around, but I hope they are enough to inspire you to remake some of your own broken jewellery! Cheers!
