i have a bunch of broken jewelry. i decided to fix some.
here is what i fixed tonight:
i fixed four chains: the longest one is a kinda box chain thingy and i didnt think i could fix it. i was surprised and kinda proud to have done it.

the shortest one is a choker.

i made a ring for my mother.

the stone is a dark turquoise (its an actual stone not plastic), the thick wire is pink and the small one is gold.

and with the remaining bits of chain i had, i made a ring for my best friend.


next step: mending my broken heart...

IMO, the best treatment for a broken heart is crafting.... and time  Hang in there.

I'm impressed that you fixed the chains.  I'd never even tried that, instead just using the pieces.  Your model is the cutest!

I love the effect of the 2 different wires in the ring.  That adds a visual, textural interest.

The chain ring is really interesting.  Does it slip over the knuckles or is there some kind of clasp?

Great Job!

I have wire tweezers to fix the chains. but i had never done it before.
The chain ring slips on. putting the beads on the ends of the chains was the hardest.

My model's name is Cookie Langinger and she thanks you for the compliment. She is thinking of entering the pageant next year.

im hanging on but i need more craft supplies...

I love the chain ring, I've never seen anything like that before. It is totally the kind of ring I'd be interested in because I have such slender fingers. Something like that I could adjust and it wouldn't fall off!

I made four more rings with the same concept.
