I like to browse in second hand shops and since I started making jewellery, I've always looked out for the cheap bags of broken jewellery that some second hand shops sell. Often the jewellery isn't actually broken, but just things that haven't sold, which I then either keep or pass on to friends or gamily (or even another second hand shop). The broken jewellery is great as a resource for making my own jewellery.
I made two of these bracelets from a broken necklace plus brand new fastenings
Meanwhile, I'm delighted that two of my bracelets have been featured in two
separate Etsy Treasuries. For those who don't know Etsy, Treasuries are
selections of items from other Etsy sellers, in both cases here chosen
by Rhian. So thank you Rhian and you can see the treasuries here and here.
