It was a VERY PRETTY VINTAGE MILLEFIORI BROOCH, and it would have been lovely to wear, except that the pin was broken. Glenda, on the jewellery repair table, was able to remove the broken piece and fit a new fastening by breaking up a new fitting for the pin only.
Glenda has a stash of useful components, waiting for the right opportunity to be used. But what really made Glenda’s day, what put an extra smile on her face, was finding that the left over broken fitting was just the right size to effect next repair – on another vintage bone brooch, that belonged to a lost mum. Two repairs of sentimental value – and no waste!
Glenda joins our regular group of volunteers at the Repair Café Sydney North to offer their advice and assistance to sharpen tools/kitchen knives, repair broken zips, sewing repair, shoe repair and wrangle recalcitrant household gadgets, etc.
