This is an introduction to a new series that I’m calling Ms. FixIt. For a long time I have come across lost trinklets like single earrings or broken jewelry pieces on the street that I pick up and take home with me. I always get ideas for fixing them and reinventing them into something new and fabulous. This is a test on my DIY arts & crafts skills as well as a more fun and cheap way to add to my jewelry box. 🙂
Here is project #1. A single chandelier with one jewel I found in the 14th Street Union Square subway stop in NYC. I grabbed it up and took it home to make it into a necklace.
As you can see in the slideshow, I tried these cute clay flower beads, but they seemed too heavy for the necklace, so I changed them into something less heavy.
