I have these “silver” bracelets that I picked up on a family vacation. I love that one is engraved with “family”, one with “friends”, and one with “faith”. I had fun wearing them until the silver rubbed off exposing the copper underneath in wacky patches, so I stuck them in a drawer and forgot about them.
One year later while packing for a trip to the same resort I came across the bracelets and for sentimental reasons wanted to bring them.
Out came my silver paint pen and several coats later I have brand new “silver” bracelets.
I thought about spray painting them but I was worried that the paint would fill in the words.
These pictures don’t really show the dramatic difference. Trust me, they went from unwearable to wearable with a few pen strokes.
