Flea markets are often full of costume jewelry in a range of styles and materials. Older pieces can be quite valuable, while others are prized for their looks. Recently, Eddie came across a collection of vintage brooches at the Nashville Flea Market. Many looked like gold in shapes reminiscent of a starburst. On closer inspection, however, he noticed most of the brooches had broken pins and latches. These weren’t valuable pieces, but for less than $20 he couldn’t resist their charm. He knew he could make them into napkin rings for his table. Here’s how to make them.
