    Here’s what was a dragonfly brooch/pin. I bought it broken crossing my fingers that my idea would work...yes, success!!!

    I just couldn’t put it down and I know first hand that this could be tricky. It had the two pieces sticking up for antennas and they were short so I knew I had 1 shot at it. They were either going to loop correctly so I could hang and wear as a necklace, or it was going to break! Then I’d be left with yet another piece of replacement parts.

    I just twisted slow and easy without much pressure and now I have my dragonfly pendant! I suppose I could cut the pin part off and file it down but hey, it’s good enough!

    Enjoy!

      Thanks Jenni, I was glad I could save it. A lot of times when trying this, the little silver piece is highly subject to snap off but not this time ;) Much appreciated!

      Karen, I used to wear brooches all the time, and mostly more than one when i did wear them. I'd also wear them on a hat. But not anymore and it would have been a nice one too but much better this way for me! Thanks hun!!!
