bling bling

When I made those rhinestone hair clips recently it reminded me of that poor old brooch of my great grandmother's that was missing stones. So I searched around a bit and found some that were the right size and color, though cut a bit differently. Here is the final product after it's repair, one green stone was replaced as well as one clear stone. It's easy to tell which one is the new stone is this picture just because the light reflects off it a bit differently, but in real life it's a pretty dang close match and I am pretty proud of myself for this little bit of reclamation.
