|Tie pin to tie necklace|
When I noticed this young clerk's necklace, I complimented her on the tie necklace, asking her if she bought it in the Belk's where she was working. She turned it over to show me it was a tie-shaped pin with a jewlry pin behind the tie knot.. Her aunt makes jewelry from old jewelry and sells the new jewelry. Her aunt did make the necklace and wired it to the tie.
I have disassembled jewelry to make something new. However, I did not sell it. I worked for a boutique, taking parts customers liked from pieces of new earrings and making earrings the customer wanted.
Have you ever recycled jewelry and remade pieces? For sale? Or just to be thrifty? To salvage favorite elements from favorite pieces?
