A broken heirloom was the starting point for this custom project. Our client's grandmother had passed on this silver filigree hair barrette which ended up breaking in half. Since our client didn't have the habit of wearing hair clips she preferred to have the pieces "converted" into pieces that she would actually use.
After receiving the piece we came up with a design for a matching bracelet and necklace set. We did some minor tool work on the broken parts to smooth out edges and even out the shapes and then accented them with glass pearls and antique silver finish findings.
