Lapis beaded bracelet repair

Family is the theme

A delightful family I have had the pleasure of working with several times. The exciting thing is the children are adults and beginning their own lives with soon to be husbands and wives. One of the daughters came in with a bracelet from nana, she remembers nana wearing this.

Well nana was a larger woman so this bracelet fit her very very generously! What to do? As the pattern of this piece is each link has a garnet with a diamond accent, it was easy-peasy to shorten the bracelet by 2 links. Then, by finding the perfect posts and backs, the removed links were used to make up a pair of earrings (not pictured).

The day after she picked this up, she was going to her soon to be in-laws to celebrate the life of their nana, who’s birthday was in January. Garnet is the birthstone for January babies. Completely appropriate to wear to commemorate and celebrate a much loved family matriarch.
