One of my favorite parts of making my own jewelry is recycling cool pieces from broken or vintage jewelry. I love the polished amethyst stones from a necklace combined with the creamy pearls off a bracelet.
- small round nose pliers
- small flush wire cutters
- chain segments (pick a size you like on existing jewelry)
- silver headpins
- silver earring hooks
- recycled pieces from old jewelry: pearls, semiprecious stones
