    As a collector, and dealer in vintage costume jewelry I am very saddened to see good jewelry destroyed. Vintage jewelry can be quite valuable, if left as found. If you feel compelled to hot glue it to something, Please leave the clip backs and pin backs intact. Someday you and someone else will be very happy you did! Best regards, Lisa
