New Life for the Pendant

One day my friend had contacted me with an request to help her fix one of her pendants. It was a Swarovski Crystalacite Pendant which was given to her by her partner and was cherished a lot. It happened to fall down on the floor and some parts of it got chipped off. She asked if I can wrap it up in any possible way to make it look whole again.
So here is how the crystal looked before. Not as green as this photo, but does change colour according to the light anyway.
























My task wasn't easy as I needed to make sure I am not covering the whole thing. Crystal still has to be seen, but as it was shattered in many different places, there were only some parts I could leave open. Gladly it wasn't cracked all over, just some little and bigger pieces fell off. If it would be broken into halves for example, I wouldn't risk fixing it as crystals of such condition do not possess any powers anyway apart from memorabilia.
So this was the first option and my friend absolutely loved the shape and the whole idea apart from the brown colour as it's just not the colour she wears. She prefers silvers and blacks.



























So without thinking too much, I decided to darken it and then to apply some silver effect on it. She was very pleased to see this transformation and not she can proudly wear her partner's present again.



















Thank you so much for reading, 
Have a lovely day!
