Grandma's jewelry box

Project Description

Who is this project for? Women What are you most proud of? I've up-cycled this piece of jewelry into 3 pieces - a necklace made from the brooch and 2 necklaces made from the earrings. My aunt was speechless and the rest of my family wanted to know if I would be willing to make MORE if there were more costume pieces found. Of course I would... it's a fitting tribute to my grandma!

What you will need

  • I used an old brooch my grandmother gave me before she passed away. The earrings were made into matching necklaces for my daughter and my niece and my aunt got the necklace.
