Happy and very amuzed by my latest kyratisation :-D

I bought from France (minuscule shipping cost!) for very cheap this cuff...
You can see on pic 2 a big lack in the repoussé openwork decor.

After searching in my bits and bobs "in case of" box, and finding nothing convenient to complete the lack...
Crazy idea came to me...

ALUMINIUM FOIL!!!

Crinckled a bit of it, cut to fit, held in place with "JudiKins Diamond Glaze" as glue, patinated with the now famous permanent markers, then another slight layer of diamond glaze to coat the color!

10 minutes project, hours of laughthing to come when I'll tell friends what I used :-)))

    Beautiful cuff, wonderful inventive repair - fills in the space no problem! That deep sapphire blue stone is gorgeous & quite mysterious like deep water, and love the silver filigree, congratulations on a good price too

    Oh Alan, thank you for another kind comment!

    Jenni, many thanks for your appreciation and poetic comment! The stone is a flat old lapis, rather shattered but so complementary to the design!

    Mrstyndall, Ken! Many thanks :-) It is only a "cosmetic" repair, even if resistant :-)

    Gillian, thank you for your appreciated comment on the "mac-gyverisation" ;-))

    I giggled at the pride you showed in being so inventive!!! You are a very clever little Vegemite Pascale (that's a compliment here in Aus) :)))))
