Bunny here, although a cherished companion of mine since birth, has seen better days. So has this 1980s pin my grandmother gave me new.
Repurposing pins and brooches is nothing novel for crafters. I've seen many beautiful necklaces and hair ornaments arise from the ashes of a slightly battered brooch. This one, however, isn't as sturdy as the usual choices. As you can see, the structure is a little too fragile to support jump rings or other attachments, soldering would destroy it, and I refuse to repair the wobbly pin by sawing it off and GLUING on a new one. (I really, really hate seeing a huge chunk of hot glue on a jewelry piece.)
All this pin really has going for it is sentimental value.
I'll be on the idea hunt for this one for a bit, clearly.
