What to do with a broken broach or necklace? Turn it into hair accessories. This one, was a butterfly broach, given to me for my birthday a few years back....and the pin attachment broke off. But since the type of metal its made of...glue will not stick...my only option would have been to solder it back on...my soldering gun is currently misplaced. However...yarn thru the figuree in 2 inconspicuous spots...tie it to a hairclip....then glue the yarn itself to the clip....finished. Glue will stick to a clip...later, I'm gonna line the inside to the clip with a piece of satin ribbon. I even left a little of the yarn as a streamer to tie into a bow. Give it a try.
