There I Fixed It.

My friend asked me about fixing her bracelet.
This is her favorite bracelet, and even with the missing stone still wears it :)
I looked at the wrap, simple enuff - the size of the stone, easy enuff -

Sure - I can fix it:)

I dug thru most of my stone supplies looking for a good fit for the bracelet. I have some smallish garnets, but the color was just wrong. Then I found some random chip stones. Yes, there is a hole drilled in it, but it was perfect!

I bent the wires slightly to put the chip in place, and formed the wires back around the chip, and WA-LA!!! Can you tell which one was added?

I had more chips and made a pair of earrings to go with the bracelet. I wrapped the end of the wire around the chip grouping to give it a wire wrapped feel, like the bracelet.
