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.
The items I needed to fix this were some beading wire, a couple of crimp beads, a couple of crimp covers, a couple of jump rings and my jewelry pliers.
First off, make a loop through a jump ring with the beading wire and a crimp bead.
Remove beads from old necklace and place in new beading wire.
Finish with another loop on the other end, making it tight, but with some wiggle room.
Cut off the extra wire and insert end through beds.
Cut off the broken pieces from the original necklace.
Attach new beaded piece to chain with jump rings.
Finish off by placing crimp covers over crimp and done.
Now I just need to make it to the post office to send it back to her… Soon, I promise!
