When it comes to jewelry, I am pretty sure every female has a favorite piece the like to wear. Sometimes you find a bracelet or necklace that fits your style perfectly, so you tend to wear that piece all of the time. With constant wear comes some possible "tear." This was the case with Emily's beloved yellow statement necklace.
Emily's go-to necklace was her bright Yellow Confetti necklace she had purchased from Anthropologie. This was her necklace. She would wear it all of the time and every single time she had it on, someone would tell her how much they loved the color and the style of the necklace. Emily headed out of town for a wedding and, of course, packed Yellow Confetti. When she arrived home from her weekend of fun, she noticed her necklace had somehow got into a bit of a tangle with some clear nail polish and lost. She thought her beloved necklace was ruined and began planning the memorial service for good ol' Yellow Confetti, until I told her it could be saved. Her plans came to a screeching halt as we began to work on Yellow Confetti's resurrection from sad and drab to fantastically fab!
Since Emily had worn Yellow Confetti for quite a few years, the chain was pretty tarnished (it also got a taste of her clear nail polish). The first thing I did to bring her necklace back to life was replace the chain with a new one. This is one of the easiest necklace fixes you can do if you own a necklace that is old and tarnished. After the chain was replaced, I began to remove the beads that were damaged from the nail polish. Emily was lucky her necklace was full of bead clusters, which made it way easier to remove the damaged beads and shift other beads around without making her necklace look sparse.
