Jewelry Clinic

I bought this pair of earrings more than a year ago at Ann Taylor Loft. They have seen better days: one of the chains has broken off, the metal lost its "silver" coating and the earrings just look old and sad.

With two jewelry classes under my belt and several projects completed, I decided to rehabilitate this pair of earrings.

After going to Beadazzled and buying a new silver chain, I used head pins and other supplies I already had on hand to give this pair a new life. I'm pretty happy with the end result (however, I accidentally broke one of the original beads, so the new design has 2 less beads than the original: I can live with this).
