I just did a very stupid thing.

The kids gave me a necklace for Mothers’ Day made of abalone shell and silver. Then my younger one was swinging it around and it came apart. So I Krazy Glue’d it together today. But I was distracted by talking on the phone as I did it, and glued it on backwards.

What are the chances I can get the silver and abalone apart without destroying the abalone? Is there anything that will dissolve Krazy Glue that won’t dissolve abalone? Who thought it was a good idea to sell me Krazy Glue in the first place?

  1. I think nail polish remover should work… I just tested it on a scrap piece of shell I have (i make jewelry), and it’s fine… may tarnish the silver, though, but that should polish up without a problem. Good luck!

  2. I link to this site not because it has any new info (it recommends acetone, too), but because the section on what to do if you accidentally glue your lips together was disturbing, yet also a bit of a relief:http://www.supergluecorp.com/removingsuperglue.html
    I don’t think acetone will hurt the abalone, but if you’re nervous, and can wait, I have a cheap bracelet with an abalone charm that I bought in NZ (where they call it paua) that I’d be willing to dunk in acetone tonight.

  3. WARNING: Big old fatty self-promotion threadjack here, but it segues into this post, I swear.So, in reading this post, it occurred to me how much fun it would be to have a personal blog to not only post your foibles, but also to get advice from the general public as to how to remedy them. Coincidentally, I had been working on a personal blog for a couple of days, but I wasn’t sure I was going to go public with it.
    But I decided I am! So if you are all bored at work or home, would you please, please, pretty please, read my blog? You can click on my name below to get to it.
    I am not one of those spammer people who posts random tangential comments at the bottom of blogs I’ve never read, in the hopes of getting you to click on my blog and sell you some stuff. I’m not selling anything, I promise. And I comment here all the time.
    This is my new blog, in case the link below doesn’t work: http://boringtownsclosed.blogspot.com/

  4. Can I just say that I’m glad for you that it was the necklace that got the KrazyGlue and not, say, an elderly cat?Hope the acetone works! It sounds like this is an important save to make.

  5. The natural insitinct is to look for value in tech stocks when you want to capitalize on the tech revolution, right? Wrong. The tech revolution has arguably created the most value in retail, notably the success of Wal-mart and the Walton family fortune.

  6. Thanks to all formulas and solutions above!! I am a fan of this blog for a while now and use to read it…. (I have a 4 months baby)I read this post a few months ago and this morning I had a little situation with crazy glue..
    the warm water with soap and acetone worked just perfectly fine!! thanks

  7. As eventful and entertaining as the recent Man Utd v Chelsea match was, for http://www.bestcheapbeatsbydre.net/ me the highlight was the debut of the Nike T90 Laser IV’s. Contributing to both the http://www.cheapfootballcleatssale.org/ amazing goals and even more amazing misses, they were constantly in the thick of the action. Since that http://www.bestcheapfootballcleats.com/ eventful day an increasing amount of professionals have been seen donning Nikes newest http://www.adidassocccercleats.com/ boot release, so needless to say, when they http://www.cheapfootballbootsshop.net/ arrived today it was like Christmas had come early!
