Kansas City Hospice Partnership10:08 AM
The last picture is an example of how we use broken jewelry that has been donated to Kansas City Hospice. We use broken earrings, brooches, etc and turn them into new jewelry such as a pendant or a new necklace.
This last picture is my first attempt at this design. It’s great to use up left-over beads. You want to use a 12 gauge aluminum wire for the frame and then wrap the beads onto the frame with Soft Flex 22 gauge Craft Wire. You can wrap anything onto the frame including buttons, brooches, cabochons, or beads. I plan to make a lot of these to use up all the miscellaneous pieces. This one sold the first day and I wasn’t even happy with my first try. I used the wire I had on hand which was not the ideal gauge. You really need to use aluminum so you can easily bend the frame into the design you want. Aluminum is also light weight and comes in lots of colors. You can compliment the frame color with any color of Soft Flex Craft Wire that you like.
