Repurposed Jewelry Pendant
Dip into your stash of old brooches and pins to create a Repurposed Jewelry Pendant from Candace Jedrowicz. Jewelry craft ideas don't have to be complicated or expensive - simply use pieces you already have and let your creativity shine through. This is a great excuse to show off an old piece of jewelry that is especially meaningful.
- Small spacer beads
Open the pin back and slide on enough spacer beads to almost fill the pin wire. Close the pin back.
Fold chain in half and slide under the pin wire so a small loop of chain shows. Pass the rest of the chain through the loop and, as you tighten the chain, guide it to the middle of the pin wire between the spacer beads. This is so the chain stays in place.
- Attach a charm to the pin wire between the two strands of chain. This will keep the pin from falling forward.
