Thrift Store Ring Conversion

I have had a lung problem for a few weeks, so I haven't been up to doing anything much. I have worked a little on accessories - they are fun and quick to make, and provide a big impact.

I found this old ring at a thrift store for $3.25. I bought it, took it home, and cut the ring part off. I smoothed the soft metal with my snips, and roughed up the back area. Then I used hot glue to glue a brooch back on. Voila! A new brooch.
