So, I saw this pretty little brooch being sold "as found" in an antique shop and just knew I had to do something with it. It has no pin, so I put it on a chain and added the dangly chains and a single Swarovski bicone for a bit of sparkle. Not a complicated make at all - the hardest part was working out how big to make the jump rings - but I love the result so much I had to show it off Wink



The image is rather big... sorry, I forgot how to do clickable thumbnails, and you won't see the detail if I resize it Roll Eyes

Opinions welcome!

Beautiful! I like how you couldn't take "broken/as is" as an answer.

I love seeing the words "for repair" or "as found" on old jewellery. Gets the little grey cells going - and usually means it's cheaper too Wink Thanks!
