Broken Links

This is one of the most common types of broken jewelry, but it's a quick fix for Elizabeth Lassing. This simple bracelet suffered stress in two different locations, causing the links to open and the bracelet to fall apart. But with just the right tools and just a few minutes, Elizabeth Lassing can reassemble your broken piece of jewelry and secure all of the links to reduce the chance of further breakage.

Re-stringing Bracelets and Necklaces

"Stringing" is a common means for creating jewelry, especially costume jewelry, but often the elastic or string used lacks the durability for a long-lasting life. This bracelet is an example of elastic that grew tired and snapped, and some of the bracelet's original beads were also lost when the bracelet broke.

However, a bracelet like this is easily fixable! From Elizabeth Lassing's vast collection of beads, matching replacement beads were selected and brought back into the bracelet, which was entirely restrung onto thick and durable elastic, bringing this bracelet back to life again.

Re-stringing jewelry isn't just for when a piece breaks; if you have a bracelet or necklace that doesn't drape right, pinches the hairs on your wrist or neck, feels tired or loose, shows exposed string or elastic under the beads, or just doesn't feel right, ask Elizabeth Lassing to take a look at your jewelry to see how a quick re-stringing with the proper materials will make it beautiful again and extend the life of the piece as well!

Tangled Chains

The tangled chain problem is one jewelry fans know well, especially when we quickly toss our jewelry into the jewelry box at the end of the day. But even the most convoluted tangles can be easily undone with a bit of time, patience, and a few key tools. Before you toss those chains in the back of your jewelry box because you just don't have the time to try untangling the mess, ask Elizabeth Lassing for help so that you can enjoy your pieces again without the headache of trying to work through the tangled puzzle yourself!

Beaded Accessories

Elizabeth Lassing can repair more than just your favorite pieces of jewelry. This example shows a lovely butterfly sun catcher purchased from a glass museum whose hook fell off the day it was purchased. Not only that, but the beads dangling below the butterfly were poorly attached and, as a result, hung lopsided. With the skills of jewelry wireworking, Elizabeth Lassing recreated the dangling links so that they hung beautifully and correctly from the butterfly. The hook was also reattached and strongly secured to ensure that this beautiful piece remains hanging on the window and catching a full day's worth of sun!

Beaded Dresses

Many beautiful gowns use a variety of gorgeous beads and dazzling sequins that can easily snag and become unwoven from your dress. While sewing is an easy task for many, finding the perfect matching beads to replace the lost ones is quite challenging. Elizabeth Lassing has a vast collection of beads of all shapes, styles, and colors, and can help you add beads back into your favorite gowns at an incredibly affordable rate.


This gown is just one example of such a repair. A young girl was excited to wear this beautiful dress to her junior prom, but after a fun night of dancing, she discovered that numerous patches of beads had come unraveled from the gown, leaving gaps in the beadwork everywhere. The girl and her mother asked the bridal shop to repair the missing bead patches, but when they picked up the dress, they were devastated to discover that the bridal shop had removed more patches of beads from the back of the dress to fill in gaps of beads in the front, leaving even more noticeable gaps in the back of the dress's beadwork than before. Needing a real repair solution, they turned to Elizabeth Lassing to ask if the right beads could be located to fill in all of the missing bead patches on the gown. In just days, Elizabeth Lassing had the dress repaired back to new with the beading pattern fully re-established. The gown was ready for a senior prom, and the now-senior young lady was thrilled to have her dress ready for another night of beauty and dancing!
