My G-ma's Bling

When my Grandma died in 2008 (aged 101 - good going!) I got some of her brooches.
They're some serious bling!

I love this little shiny-fest, but the pin on the back is broken, so I thought of an easy way to still wear it.

I pulled off the broken back with a pair of pliers.

Then using my trusty E6000 glue I stuck a ring blank to the back of the brooch.

And there we go. The fanciest ring in town.

Have any of you been doing any up-cycling recently?

    Having problems to send you comments :)
    I've been going to sewing and upcycling classes in Lampeter on Wednesday. We've made hats and fingerless mittens from old jumpers.
    Bye for now
