I ♥ Jewelry…

Who doesn’t?

It can be a fun expression of your personality and there are so many choices. Gold or silver? Classic or rebel? Less is more? Or more is more..? You know which category I fall in..!

Each day in elementary school I would choose a necklace to wear. I had no shortage of choices seeing as my mom and grandma had a thing for Avon…!

Fast forward some years…and since I have sort of a letting go problem…. I had a pile of necklaces from childhood. I also had lonely earrings and tiny pendants on broken chains that I stubbornly thought I would get around to fixing… And a charm bracelet that looked conspicuously bare flaunting only 4 charms….

...the stash...
…the stash…

What’s a jewelry hoarder to do?

Since my pull in life lately is to Inspire*Transform*Revive…I sorted through all the broken bracelets, corralled the single earrings and picked my favorite teeny tiny pendants from child hood… I grabbed my pliers and one by one, they found a new home along the resurrected charm bracelet… What’s old is new again..!

The beauty of this sweet jewelry revival is threefold:

It cost nothing! I already had all the bling..!

It’s sentimental! Now I get to look at the locket from my dad instead of tucking it away in a jewelry box…

It’s unique! No one will have the same bracelet as you! I guarantee…!

...progress...
…progress…

This is a simple project anyone can do- even if all you have is just a bracelet that has large enough links to get a jump ring through you can totally rock your own custom charm creation..!

...the grand finale...
…the grand finale…♥

Kind of reminds me of 2 of my favorite verses: 2 Corinthians 5:17 and Ephesians 2:10…!

Thanks for reading! What’s your favorite piece of jewelry?
