Repairing my hair accessory

When I was working back in Japan, I bought a hair clip. I really liked it because it was shiny and cute, simple but stunning 🙂 I always carried it in my purse, and whenever I wanted to tie up my hair, I used it. I like keeping my hair up when I want to get concentrated and work on something.

This is the thing after several years. I don’t think this looks appealing to any of you though…

The embellishment chains and the pink glitter were  falling off. I knew it didn’t look good, so I wasn’t using it for a long time, but I just couldn’t throw it away.

I probably didn’t know what to do if it was two year’s ago… but now, I know exactly what to do.

First, I glued the chains. I should have done it long time ago but I was also lazy…

It’s already looking much better than before… isn’t it?

Then, I used my favorite items… resin and glitter!! For the glitter, I thought of changing color from pink, and chose gold 🙂

Let me show you how it looks after I repaired 🙂

It looks much better now!! I will probably be able to use it for another several years now 🙂

I think “fast fashion” involves with lots of “waste”, which is really bad when we think of the world’s environment. Through repairing experience, I thought I’d like to make things that would be cherished by customers for a longer time with love.

You can check my handmade jewelry and hair accessories on my Etsy store. I hope they will be your favorite for a longer time 🙂
