My favorite necklace that I just made lost a gem. Silly meshy shirt I was wearing – the prong got stuck on the shirt, I moved, and bam – the gem fell out! It was dark where I was at and I figured it was a lost cause.

Then I remembered I had some rhinestone chain in my stash. Now, if you don't have rhinestone chain, you can do this with other gems or if you save the original one, that is good too.

Here's how to fix your own missing bling issues all by yourself – it's DIY, baby!

The next step for me is to mix some ICE Resin and paint it over top of the stones, to act a sealer to hold them in place. One day I'll get to that second step. For now, I can always keep replacing the gems I guess! LOL

Do you have any jewelry that you stopped wearing becuase it was damaged?
