DIY Jewelry Recycle Series : Part 2 - Mini Brooches

Bringing you Part 2 of Jewelry Recycle series (Did I mention I hate throwing away stuff?) 

I have been eyeing teeny-tiny brooches and pins appearing everywhere for a long time now. Somehow, when I get around to buying the ones I like, they're (long) gone! So a couple of days ago, when I found myself with leftover jewelry gems and tiny brooch pins, it was a godsend opportunity (<drama/>).

Here's what you'll need to make your quick and unique versions:

  • Jewelry gems or rhinestones
  • Brooch pins, 10mm
  • Instant Super Glue (available here)


    Here's what you need to do:

    Step 1: Put a drop of glue on the backside of the gem. With a toothpick, spread the glue



    Step 2: Attach the brooch blank to the gem and leave to dry




    Step 3: Pin your mini brooches to anything and everything and enjoy the upgrade :)





    - Cheers!

    1. This is a great DIY project to get a beautiful custom brooch at an affordable price. You can create a ton of different colors and designs with different stones. I have used www.rhinestoneshop.com for a great selection of different colors and shapes of rhinestones. Thanks for this amazing project walkthrough!
