I have been drilling a hole and hanging all my bits and bobbles from long vintage chains with jump rings, they are so fun and unique.. You just took it to a new level I can't wait to try it, thanks

You are very creative.. :) Good way to reuse other jewelries and put life back on them. :)


These look so pretty! This makes me want to go out thrifting for interesting jewelry. That necklace with so much going on is way cool, and so are those rings. I really like what you did!


wow, they look lovely!
I esp. like the snake ring..

I'll start to look for broken jewelry at thrift shops.


Thanks for this useful post! I have just the ring that needs a repair...I'm going to look for a bead to glue in. Genius!


This is such a great idea and something I had never really thought of doing. Thanks for the tip.


I had to chuckle about the gluing your fingers together part. This is my big concern when using glue, too.

I mostly add old jewelery to artwork. I have been known to mend stuff but mostly to give to my sis as she wears it and I mostly don't.

Mostly I add it too a box and think hmmmm someday I'll get to it. Well seeing you do it put a fire under my rear. I need to do it soon. Thanks Selena, you are so inspiring to me. :)

very cool (even as a jeweler i think that is a fun idea!)


You are brilliant. I have done the find a bead thing with a brooch that was missing a stone - come to think of it I nabbed the other stone from another vintage brooch that was missing way to many stones to wear!! - but the glitter ring is pure genius-magic.


Hi Selena,

Well, I am not a huge jewelry person. But I love your ideas.

I have found a few nice pieces from yard sales though.

Happy Wed.!


I adore the eclectic lucky brand piece, especially the little "owl mask" charm. I fix things the same way- using whatever other bits are around to make minor repairs. Imperfections add to the charm.

I realize it's just a little bit late for Mother's Day, but I know my wife would still love some jewelry like this. We were thinking of getting what she had repaired, but maybe just getting some new would make her happy.
