So...my boyfriend bought me a pretty little heart pendant necklace. Then I stupidly left it on the floor. And he vacuumed it up. Apparently the vacuum absolutely hates jewelry because it tried its best to destroy it. Now I'm left with a pendant but the hook part has been snapped off. I'd really love to be able to do something with it because it's a bit sentimental.

Any ideas for what I can do with the pendant. It's edges are beat up so it's a bit scratchy. Also it has some remnants of superglue on it because the boyfriend tried to fix it. I was thinking maybe resin, but I have no idea how to do it. Any great resin tutes?

Be careful with glitter. It never goes away. Glitter is the herpes of craft supplies.

Have you taken it into the jewlers for a look? Im pretty hard on my jewlery, I work at a sawmill and never take any of mine off and my local jewler has, many many times, fixed it up. It looks like all it needs is a simple buff and a soldered on hook. Get them to look at it before you decide anything, not particulary crafty, but itll get your necklace back to its former glory

If you want a simple fix that you can do, you can make a jump ring and link it around the edge to put a chin through. But if it is sterling or white gold, I would just take it to a jeweler to get buffed and have a new bale soldered on.
