Happy February! Here’s some easy-to-refashion Valentine’s Day Jewelry–
I inherited 6 Avon tie-tac pins with dangly hearts from one of the jewelry bonanzas I received last month. First, I removed the little red hearts from the tacky cherubs. I did save the cherubs to use later.
Then I cut two pieces of silver chain of about 1.25 inches, and attached the little hearts to pierced ear posts in a cascading pattern. Voila!
And on the ears of my daughter:
Next, I found a charm bracelet that did nothing for me in that same jewelry bonanza–
See the silver heart in the upper left of the bracelet? I removed it, setting aside the charms and chain for something else. Next, I rooted through a box of chains–
to find one that went with the silver heart. I found a chain with a clasp already on it, cut the chain in half, and then attached the heart with jump rings. Then I was able to adjust the chain to my daughter’s neck by fitting it on her and taking out about one inch.
She is leaving in several days for a college semester in The Netherlands. I wove my heart’s blessings into these simple pieces that will fly with her over the Atlantic.
