Even vintage jewelry needs a face lift once and awhile. My daughter saw this vintage pin at a thrift shop. She knew I would be able to fix it. She decided to buy it and gave it to me for Christmas.
I loved the pin from the moment I opened it. My daughter and I are both dancers. My daughter especially loved the way it said “Mother” on it. I started to fix it, but realized there might be a few others out there that might be interested in the post as well – so I thought I would share. This piece was originally gold & blue, and both colors had worn off in several places. I covered the mother of pearl “mother” with some painter’s tape.
I sprayed the pin with Rust-oleum Silver Metal spray
I sprayed the back first, let it dry, and then I sprayed the front.
I painted the dancer’s dress with blue nail polish.
I am happy with the way it turned out. My daughter was very excited to see the pin all fixed up and ready to wear.
