|The push to go green these days is stronger than ever. And with the holidays fast approaching, what better way to be green than to either buy vintage, or repurposed a vintage piece of jewelry into a unique, one of a kind, and creative gift.|
|With just a little imagination, and a glue gun, that old, damaged, un-wearable piece of vintage jewelry becomes modern, high fashion, and absolutely amazing.||

|The uses are endless for old jewelry. Rhinestone pieces make the flashiest of additions to a purse or a hat, or even the heel/sole of a pump.
String an old brooch onto a newly designed necklace to mix the old and the new for a fantastic look.
Old ties, barrettes, hair combs, even old shoe clips, glasses, and cuff links and be repurposed into some spectacular pieces - from new hair accessories, to embellishments on scarves and totes.
The possibilities are endless!
|While I would never recommend using a perfectly functional brooch in this way, and would advise repairing damaged vintage items if at all possible, if a piece is beyond wearable repairs, don't throw it in the trash. Reuse and recycle!|
