Jewelry Refashion

I have two drawers of assorted junk jewelry which include bits and pieces I found at my grandmother’s, things friends gave me, and precious items from my teenage purchases. Here is the first piece I’ve pulled together from: an eyeglass holder, a broken bracelet, a broken necklace, and a single ear clip.

The Process

  • Replaced the eyeglass holder finding with the bracelet clasp
  • Swapped out some of the charms missing a bead on the bracelet bit
  • Attached the bracelet bit to the eyeglass holder/necklace
  • Removed the clip from the ear ring and jerry-rigged the piece to the necklace
  • Attached the gold chain to the ear clip and the clasp

    Oh, that is lovely! Very…unexpected. My grandmother collected costume jewelry in the ’70′s and used to use it to build grand, glittering pictures. One of my favorite Christmas decorations is an enormous christmas tree, on green velvet, framed in a gilt frame, made entirely of bits of gaudy jewelry, strings of fake pearls, and Christmas lights. The string plugs into the wall…and it still works after all these years. It’s not Christmas until that thing is blinking in the corner somewhere.

    Ha- Aunt LoLo talks about that picture…but _I_ have Grandma’s left over odds and ends! :) I’m thinking some nice jewelry is in order- thanks for sharing!

  4. I must say that the necklac is very pretty. Very beautifully designed.

    Nice work! I love the “pearl” effect of the whole piece. I have taken a summer blogging break from writing about refashioning jewelry and life, but have enjoyed looking up other’s refashioning. Never mind that it’s two years after you posted…keep up the great stuff!
