I absolutely hate when something happens to a piece of my jewelry. Since I often find it on sale/clearanced, it’s not always possible to replace. And even if I could just replace it, that’s not very budget friendly. So when 2 flowers popped off of my new blue necklace, I set out to find a solution.
I first tried to just hot glue the flowers back on, but they didn’t stick good and just popped back off. I knew I needed something more heavy duty.
When googling my issue, I kept running across E6000 as the go-to for gluing jewelry back together, so I picked some up at Hobby Lobby. Beware, though–after getting it home and reading the packaging, there are several warnings, so READ the packaging careful and use all precautions!
I also have several statement necklaces that I would like to hang down a little bit more, so I picked up the chain extenders. This is the quickest fix of them all–just clip it on to your chain and you’re done!
Finally, I have a bracelet that was custom-made, and it’s a hair too short. I got some of these little rings to extend the length just enough to make it perfect.
|Silver Jump Rings, $1.99 at Hobby Lobby.* |
E6000, $3.99 at Hobby Lobby.*
Chain Extenders, $2.88 at Walmart.
*You can use Hobby Lobby’s weekly coupon towards the purchase of the first 2 items.
I’m so relived to have my jewelry fixed, both quickly and cheaply. Thank God I no longer feel like I have to throw it out! What’s your favorite jewelry fixes? s
