We all have some old, old-fashioned jewelry in our jewelry boxes that we would like to wear again. We can always transform a piece of jewellery, recycle it

Some jewelry stores specialize in the transformation of jewelry, a physical and artistic process that allows us to reuse metals and stones to create a brand new piece of jewelry to suit your taste. Among all the jewels (ring, bracelet, pendant, earrings) is the brooch.

This jewel, this accessory that allows you to customize your wardrobe in the blink of an eye, is back in fashion. Let's see how to transform a brooch into a pendant and wear it as a necklace.

TIP FOR WEARING A PENDANT BROOCH

First of all, you should know that the brooch is a beautiful jewel that you pin on a piece of clothing (shirt, dress, sweater) and most often on the bust. You can very well hang it on a scarf or a hat for example. The brooch can find its place on a chain.  To do this, simply close the pin at the back of the brooch ornament. Then, slide a chain or a leather tie between the brooch and the pin. This trick is quite simple and works mainly with small, well-balanced brooches.

For example, you can wear a gold sun-shaped brooch on a chain, choker or necklace. On the other hand, large brooches with a rather complex shape will be badly balanced: it will fall badly on the bust and will have a tendency to turn on itself. It may also open, fall off, or get damaged... 

ACCESSORIES TO CONVERT A BROOCH INTO A PENDANT YOURSELF

There are many accessories to make and transform your own jewellery. If you wish to convert your brooches into pendants, you can purchase :

  • A bélière : this element fixed at the top of the pendant and which makes it possible to suspend the jewel from a chain or a cord
  • A tube: it is used to hide the pin behind the pin and to keep it closed
  • A vertical pin to convert a pin: it is inserted on the existing pin, keeps it closed and, at its top, is a belly to pass a chain or a link

It is possible to remove the current fixing system from your spindle. The pin is usually either glued or welded. Be careful not to damage the jewelry. Then, you just have to fix a pin to turn the brooch into a pendant.
