- Use a curtain ring from a store like Pottery Barn, an antique store, or any oversized ring
- Remove the screw from the curtain ring (if there is one)
- Use wood patch to repair the hole
- Use a colored wood pen or marker to hide the paste. Make sure the paste is in a similar color to the wood.
- Marry the two necklaces together to create a stunning oversized statement piece.
- Use a mini saw to cut through each end of the necklace and add the second necklace or part of a belt.
