Grandma’s Earring

Vintage clip earring transformed into a necklace

I was lucky to inherit many wonderful things from my grandmother, including her jewelry box. By the time it came to me it contained mostly bits of costume jewelry like this green glass clip earring.

I closed the clip on some antiqued brass chain, added some wire to keep it secure and strung a few matching crystals to make this necklace.

What a lovely vintage necklace you created.

Reminds me that I’m redoing a necklace that belonged to my mother that I admired so much growing up and still do now that she’s no longer with with me. She invited me to look at all her jewelry and claim whatever pieces I wanted. I wish I were done with it so I could post a picture. Thank you.
