Always great to be able to repair and reuse broken jewelry. A tip on how to add a bright, metal jump ring or chain to an older, more tarnished necklace is to use the flame of a wooden match to burn the newer metal. It will give it an antique look. Try doing it on just one bit of metal to see how it reacts. And, always hold the metal with your pliers, not your hands, when you're burning it. Allow it to cool. Wipe off excess tarnish with a tissue. Note: this needs a wooden match, not a lighter.

Also, to polish sterling chains, you can use a q-tip with fireplace ashes. They work great!
