Repurposed Broken Jewelry Bookmarks
Please tell me I'm not the only one who still reads actual books! If you do, too, then this is a super fun and easy DIY bookmark craft that anyone can do- and they make fantastic gifts, as well. You can click HERE for my full tutorial!
Broken jewelry- we all have some laying around, right? Like that old brooch that's missing gemstones, or the earring without a mate. Well, here's a fun way to upcycle and repurpose them into functional bookmarks that also make great gifts. Please head over to my original tutorial for some tips & tricks!
Once you have your jewelry bits gathered, you'll need some ribbon (any width is fine, but I recommend at least 1" wide and in lengths of 8" or so) and some ribbon clamps. With small pliers, carefully pinch the clamp on each end of your ribbon.
Then, just use a basic jump ring to connect your broken jewelry bit. Literally- that's it, you're done. And it only took about 5 minutes!
See, isn't that pretty? And so easy to make! This is perfect for those bags of random jewelry bits you see at thrift stores, too.
I have an entire set! And I made a set for my mom from her mom's jewelry, which she just loved. Mother's Day will be here before you know it...
