One of my favourite necklaces is this bird one I made last spring, which matches both the blue and green outfits I wear often. I have needed to repair it for about a month and finally sat down to the task. This time I used a 20Lb test fishing line instead of the original 6…I don’t want to take any more chances! Luckily, it only broke when the Altoids container I transport it in fell so I wasn’t missing any pieces.
It was additional pieces, however, which I found when grabbing the fishing line. I had exactly enough beads left over last year to make a bracelet and never got around to it. Originally, I think I was holding off to see if I really wore the necklace. With the necklace repair complete and a new bracelet, I have a blue-skies and green-grass singing bird set!
This repair marks the first of many awaiting: another necklace, two pairs of work trousers to hem (one purchased 4 years ago (!) and one handed-down), and a bag.
