instead of leaving old jewelries or a family heirloom inside a “junk” jewelry box, you may consider an extreme makeover to recreate them into gorgeous new pieces thatyou would actually wear.
you can take an element of the old piece and freshen it up in a new piece, modernize an old setting or create a new one or you can also mix elements of different pieces and come up with a whole new design, etc.
