    For Gilian and those interested in my repairs
    :-D

    The pearls are chinese freshwater, nearly all my brooches can be clasped on it to become necklace :-)

    Other pics are the UV curing resin, permanent markers assortment, stones boxes and the pinch/setter I use for my repairs.

      I backed the damaged areas with tape and applied UK curing resin in tiny drop, colored with permanent marker, then another thin layer of resin.
      I'm lucky enough to have antique rosecut spare diamonds which can easily be set if right size!
      My other luck is to have a sharp view for tiny working ;-)

      Thanks for showing us how it's done. This is very interesting to me. I still have to tackle some of my plastic repair projects. Seeing your results is very inspiring!

      Dear Valentino and Agram, it is so gratifying to repair a beloved jewel!
      Really worth to dare and have a try on a simple one...

      Love what you've done again! I had to pick up an old industrial light with the magnifier on it. It works better than any other I've tried but still wish I had 20/20. So much easier. I've never tried the resin and that's a great set of markers. Perfect size tips.

      Thank you Sue for your comment! The industrial light with magnifier should be very useful for some repair!
