How to Fix a Broken Necklace

Hello! Hope you’re having a good morning today. Thankfully last night I got a little more sleep than I’ve been having lately, so I’m hoping today I’ll feel a little more energized. I made it out on a run/walk yesterday and it felt pretty good to get moving again. Boone tagged along I hopes to help him use his bum leg and aid recovery. He’s doing great and looks normal to anyone else, but Ryan and I can notice little fluctuations when he runs or gets too much activity, so I’m hoping these little run/walks will help build that muscle back up.

I also got some time to fix one of my sister’s necklace. I’ve had it for a month and I’m the worst. It literally took about 5 minutes to fix. Easy as pie, I ‘m just loving procrastination lately.

Anyways, the broken piece was the wire that held the beads together. It was kinda stiff, so with the bending and wear and tear, it was bound to break.
