Some necklaces are simply too long. They fall at an awkward point on my neck - too close to my neckline, so they fall under my top or into my cleavage. Which means I have to DIY them to size.
We make lots of jewelry, so I know what's up. But it's also really easy for anyone to shorten (or lengthen, but that'll be a separate post) a necklace. All you really need are strong scissors, a pair of pliers, and fifteen minutes.
And voila! You'll have a necklace that's the perfect length for your neckline. Basically a custom piece of jewelry. Click read more to learn how to easily edit out inches of excess necklace chain.
The United Church of Christ is a small church located just down the street from Ruskin HQ. They've recently moved into this space - downsizing a bit from their previous location - and are looking to use more multi-purpose furniture.
They commissioned us to add a keyboard drawer to the back of this communion altar so it can be used as a desk as well as a ceremonial piece. We also refinished the top, which - as you can see in the "before" photos throughout this post - had deep scratches and wax spills from many years of use.
Click through the pictures below for more details and to see the transformation of the top as well as the new multi-functionality of the table.
