How To Reuse Broken Jewellery?


How many times have you lost one earring from a pair and held on to the other one just because it looked too pretty to toss? Have a sea-load of broken accessories in your jewellery wardrobe because you thought you will put it to use someday? Welcome aboard, as we totally resonate with that and which made us think of some creative ways to use everything that you’ve hoarded.


Make A Brooch from a Fancy Ear Top

So, you own a fancy ear top with beautiful studs but don’t know how to put it to use? Firstly break the post, and fix it on a brooch pin. Ta da, your instant DIY brooch is ready. Wear it with your shirts and sweaters to bling them up.

Pendant To Hair Pin

If you have a gorgeous vintage looking pendant and you no longer want to wear it as a necklace, you can fix a hairpin on the back and use it to embellish your whimsical hairstyles. If a low bun is your wedding staple, you can gorg up the center by attaching a brooch pin to the back of the pendant.


Broken Tassel To Beautify Your Kurta/ Top

A tassel necklace broke and you no longer know what to do with it? Remove all those tassels and stitch them to the ends of the strings on your drawstring top. Or jazz up the button panel of your kurta by stitching them all there. Fancy much?


Embellish Your Clutch

You own a lot of basics and so is the case with your clutches and pouches? It definitely won’t harm to brighten them a bit right? Get your choicest studs out and embellish one section by pasting them or poking them with pin backs all over.


Make a Tabletop Accessory

We all agree on how vibrant beads look, so if you have tonnes of colourful beads courtesy to broken necklaces and bracelets, make a fancy tabletop accessory. How? You can make a set of coasters using aluminium rods and beautify your dinner table decor. Psst They could be a great personalized gift set too.

Jewellery Trends That Are Huge At Pipa Bella And Were Spotted At The Fall Winter Runways 2017-18

The international fashion runways always leave us feeling highly impressed with the splendorous outfits and the much coveted embellishments on display. While it’s no news that we are mostly waiting for these brilliant exhibits, what also interests us are the multifarious accessories that make an appearance. We like to track down a pattern so that we can zero down on cues hinting towards a potential fashion surge.

This time too, we have walked down the same path and taken notes:

Party Crystals

Think embellished tassel dreams, bedecked designs and chunky necklaces that will make you look party glam. Models at Celine, Miu Miu and Saint Laurent flaunted the sparkliest crystals making way for an evening essential that can’t be missed. Chunky crystals and shoulder grazing lengths make for  great statement pieces like the one in the middle.

Graphic Earrings

We found that earrings were rampant on the runways and could emerge as the next upward trend. While that happened, they debuted in varied shapes of molten metals, modern art forms and distinct silhouettes at Roksanda, Stella Mccartney and Marni giving us an air that they are free to be worn with anything and everything. Bringing graphic designs together with a classic silhouette definitely looks better and that is proved by the oversized hoops in the center.

Maybe they will take lead after tassels and pompoms or at least that is what we like to think. These mystical pretties came forth in the form of edgy earrings, time travelling brooches and talisman bracelets! The models at Sonia Rykiel, Lanvin and Salvatore Ferragamo showcased feather accessories looking resplendent and dreamy. Feathers also make merry with other elements resulting in statement pieces like the one at the center.

Ear Cuffs

Because edginess is always a virtue! These statement ear cuffs at Saint Laurent,Oscar De La Renta and Mugler only made sure that no other accessories were needed to further flatter the looks. Trail mail elegance is best described by a studded ear cuff just like the one found in the middle.

Interesting bracelets and hand chains were largely on display with otherworldly elements making their mark. Winged creatures with embellished details were found at Gucci,beauteous bracelets at Lanvin held timeless elegance and the likes of Prada can be conversation starters. How else will edgy and classy come together if not for a head turning accessory like the cuff bracelet in the center?

Keys – A Potential Upward Trend

Because we think after the outrage that safety pins created, keys of all sizes and shapes are here to conquer. Vintage, contemporary and ornamented keys shone at Balenciaga, Margiela and Marc Jacobs making us want to join the bandwagon.
