I don’t usually rush out and buy trendy jewelry.
For a long time I resisted the Alex & Ani craze.
After a while though I did feel badly for not supporting this local business.
Low & behold my husband bought me a bracelet. I loved it because the words on the charm meant a lot to me.
Like most trendy jewelry, this piece ended up gathering dust in my jewelry box. I recently purged my jewelry collection, and of course, did not have the heart to give this one away.
I thought about it for a while. How could I somehow display this so I could see it everyday without wearing it?
I went out to Michael’s for a cheap mini frame. While at Home Depot I grabbed some free paint samples. I used some pliers to pull the bracelet apart and break the ring off the charm.
I used these nifty glue dots to secure the charm to the outside of the frame.
(Awful photos, I know. Too lazy to drag out my camera!)
