    You can make a lot of things pretty, with love and attention

    Very true Sparky......BTW, that was my nickname growing up.....

    You should file or round off the corners of the steel brace. They seem to be aimed at the jugular and if you have ever snagged yourself in the shop on one of those...

    Didn't you know - all the aristos in London wear jewellery made from toilet parts and door knobs - it's chic ?. Joking aside, I really love this. I love how delicate you make chunky things look. Videos are brilliant and the humour is a bonus on top of the creativity. Especially love the banter from your commenters below!

    Oh London.....I'll be there for Christmas......I can't wait.

    Very clever! I'm wondering what other ideas you could come up with for hardware store items-turned-jewelry...

    Seems like there are a lot of possibilities!

    It's hard to come up with things that don't look like you're wearing a doorknob or part of a toilet. :)

    So you're saying not many people want to walk around with toilet flush handles as earrings?

    There's got to be a market for that. Just needs a little E6000 and some plastic gems. C'mon Mark, use your imagination!

    I would love to see that! If anyone can make toilet flush handles look chic, it's Mark! hahaha
