Here’s how to (re)-create absolutely stunning vintage jewels with odds n’ ends you already have skulking about the house:
Grab one of Grandma’s rusty old brooches, a necklace in need of livening up, some funky nail polish & a lil’ something to stick it all together
…paint the brooch with the polish (effectively covering all of the rusted bits) & add some toothpick polka dots with a contrasting colour *top coat or varnish if desired
…once completely dry, remove the pin from the brooch & attach it to the necklace with glue, jump rings, random bits of wire…whatever you have on hand (I was actually able to secure the brooch above to the necklace by simply twisting the remains of the brooch clasp around the chain…easy!)
…salvage another brooch & repeat
gorgeous simplicity at its finest!
