Jewelry update

A closer look at the broken pieces show some signs that perhaps the creator didn’t glue things together as they should have. The glue is peeling out of the metal frame in thin, discolored (a greyish yellow that looks sort of like filthy fingernail clippings), slightly flexible chunks that are hiding a weird greenish residue along the edge underneath. My camera can’t get a clear look at the inner edges of the metal frame, but the green is pretty bright, almost an Irish green or something.

I have had this pendant for almost 3 years, but only wore it on and off right after I received it because my 2nd daughter would cuddle me against my neck, and get scratches from the leaf along her forehead. I set it aside for at least 6-7 months total, and only wore it every day for about 7 months (since I started this blog), so the wear and tear hasn’t been too bad. My youngest does chew on my necklaces, but I have tried discouraging it by offering toys, blocks, or other items (since she had a tooth come through I didn’t want her to hurt herself with my pendants).

This is an attempt at getting a picture of the peeling adhesive.

another attempt, but our camera is being difficult.

About darkbookworm13

I am a proud mom to 3 beautiful girls, and married to the love of my life. I have been a practicing Witch since the summer of 2003, having studied many different paths over the years, ranging from Wicca, Goddess only worship (courtesy of StarHawk), Eclectic Paganism, Kitchen Witchcraft, Norse Paganism, Hearthcraft, Spiritual Luciferianism, and more. I have worked with the Futhark runes, Brian Froud's Faeries Oracle deck, Tarot decks, and I am currently working on a customized divination set based on collected items. I like to work with herbs, and gardening. I crochet and make handicrafts like wood burned items, paintings, drawings, toys, and hand sewn doll clothes for my daughters. The only title I call my spiritual path is Witchcraft, as using magic entwines deeply with the worship of the Gods who call me Their own. My Patron deity is Loki, who has chosen me as His kin.

    Okay, if it was held together with glue before, you can clean off the old glue as well as possible and use a better glue.

    I use this:

    If those codes don’t work then here:

    It is Gorilla “super glue”, NOT the regular Gorilla glue, but their own super glue version, which is awesome stuff and saved many of my sculpture type work. You can find it at Home Depot, hope this helps!
