I’ve mentioned my favorite bracelet here before when I talked about the bridesmaid dress that actually DID get worn again.
My sister-in-law gave me the bracelet as a gift on my wedding day; it was my “something blue” (because, you know, Tiffany blue).
It’s a lovely simple heart single-charm Tiffany & Co. bracelet.
But it has one little foible: that lovely lobster clasp has started to stick, so since not wearing it is not my first choice (I love to wear it pretty much every single day), I wanted to come up with a better solution.
So I grabbed some of the leftover chain and a couple of jump rings I used to make that charm bracelet teacher gift last year. [Remember to open the jump ring by twisting, not pulling.]
Add enough length of jewelry chain to still be able to slip the bracelet over your hand easily and comfortably. Attach to the bracelet with a jump ring at each end of the added chain.
Now even if the bracelet comes unclasped, it will not fall off and potentially be lost.
Wear just like normal.
See how the clasp is sticking open here?
Now my “something blue” is safe!
I love a simple and inexpensive fix! HUZZAH!! Any tips you use to keep your special pieces safe? Do tell!
I love my tiffany bracelet and I only wear it on special occassions or when my outfit needs its charm…I know we are not love our worldly treasures and keep our eyes on the treasusres in heaven, but I would be sooo sad if I ever lost my tiffany bracelet. Thanks for the the TLC tip !!
