Quick Jewelry Fixes

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

    Thanks so much for sharing these! I can't tell you how many times I've gotten a necklace caught on something and the whole clasp ends up breaking! That one is so frustrating… I'll have to check Hobby Lobby, because I'm sure they have replacement clasps too!

    Genius!! I have a little pile of "broken" necklaces that need just the repairs you mentioned. I need to get some of that glue ASAP!! Thanks for the tip. I also need to check into those chain extenders because I have several necklaces that would benefit from some extra length. I wish we were neighbors so we could have a jewelry fixing party 🙂
