“Silver” Bracelets Renewed

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.

I started this blog to share with you all the results of years of turning trash into treasures. Hopefully I'll spark some new creative thoughts and if that happens I hope that you'll share your discoveries and together we’ll build a blog that will singlehandedly reduce global warming and save the world! Okay, maybe that’s a grand goal but we should be able to at least downsize our own trash output.
