Recently, I visited a local thrift shop (nothing new in my life, right?). while I was there I spied this really cool brooch with a dark purple glittery background, a star and some seed beads in the glaze for texture. I thought it was cool, but a bit blah for a brooch.
I thought about it a bit and then decided it was better suited for a pendant. I removed the pin back and covered the back with a bit of scrapbook paper that I adhered and then sealed with some Mod Podge. then I punched a hole for the jump ring and added an eyelet.
I love how it ended up and am so glad that I bought the brooch without a plan for it. It is much better in its new home.
How about you? What have you reinvented lately?
