Don’t throw away that necklace with the broken clasp, fix it. This tutorial will show you how to easily fix a necklace clasp so it can be worn again.
My youngest was so excited when she bought this cute wiggle eye kitty necklace and was so sad when the first time she wore it the necklace clasp had broken.
It really is a pretty easy fix so it was time to bring out the Amazing Mom bag of tricks and save the day.
All you will need is 2 pairs of jewelry pliers and a new lobster claw.
First you will need to open the jump ring that attached the lobster claw to the necklace. To do that use 2 pairs of jewelry pliers or even needle nose pliers and pinch each side of the ring. Push one hand forward and another hand backward. Don’t pinch or twist because this will change the shape of the ring and it will no longer be nice and round.
The Lobster Claw I had was a touch bigger than the original but it will still work great. Remove the broken clasp and replace with the new clasp.
To close the jump ring use the two pairs of pliers again each pinching a side of the jump ring and with a rocking motion close the jump ring so it is nice and tight.
And that is all there is to it! Aren’t I amazing!
And here is my happy girl. Mom to the rescue once again.
