You don't necessarily have to reset a piece of jewelry to revitalize it. Try using a brooch as a pendant, or a necklace as a bracelet. Coming up with creative ways to use what you already have can make for dynamic dressing and create an unexpected and unique personal style statement. Transform a pair of plain black pumps into evening footwear with some simple clip-on earrings. It's a fashion makeover you can do in under a minute. Want to add shimmer to a basic, black belt? Attach an old lapel pin to it, and you'll create a sparkling accent for a black skirt or conservative suit.
