For those of you who've been around my blog a while, you'll know how I love to recycle or upcycle my jewelry, making new pieces out of old....
Look what I got my Sean to make for me last weekend.
Sigh.... is it not gorgeous???
First up let me tell you that Sean was very, VERY skeptical when I proposed my plan to him. But he eventually agreed that if I didn't
kill blame him if it all went wrong then he would do my bidding...
I have a wide band Sterling Silver ring that I love but it was in need of a makeover or a good polish and an odd earring that I don't think has ever had a partner.
So.... Sean drilled a teeny tiny hole in the ring with his special drill bit.
Note how he made the hole on the dented side of the ring - just in case it looked awful. He was really surprised how hard silver is to drill through.
He applied some E6000 glue to the underside of the earring and pushed it through the hole and left it to set. Once that was done, I snipped the long bit off the back of the earring and Sean polished the inside of the ring with his drill thingy again, so that it wouldn't scratch my finger.
Now I have a beautiful new ring....I just love it!
I think it may actually be my favourite piece of jewelry ever...
Happy weekend everyone
