I always find cool pins but seem to loose the backings and then I can’t wear them anymore. So I came up worth a quick and easy solution to still be able to wear the pin but not have to worry about the back. What you will need : one pin missing its back a piece of chain cut to the desired length wire cutters one packet of Sugru in your color of choice

Step 1: Preparing the Pin

First trim the pins off the back of the pendent make sure you don’t completely remove it so you can still hook on the chain

Step 2: Setting the Chain

Place both ends over the remains of the pins.

Step 3: Adding Sugru

Roll Sugru and the smooth it over the chain and pin to cover so nothing pokes through.
