Breath new life into old heritage jewelry

Everyone has bits and pieces of family jewelry that sits dormant in the back of their jewelry drawers or close drawers. As jewelry trends change, families often don’t enjoy wearing antique pieces on a daily bases. Fran Riddell is on a mission to change that and breath new life into old heritage trinkets. 

Fran Riddell Renaissance Collection started taking antique and state pieces of jewelry, stripping them down and making them into cultured pearl bracelets and necklaces, more than 40 years ago. Fran shared her story with Rebecca Turner on Good Things.
