Repurposed Vintage Clip Earrings
by Carol Wofford.
I love old jewelry and I hate to throw any of it away, even if it has gone out of style.
Lately I have been thinking of ways to turn those old clip-on earrings into something a bit more serviceable.
I collected some that I thought looked pretty next to each other.
I removed the clips and glued them to filigree connectors.
I had to smooth off the backs of some so they’d lay flat.
I then arranged them on the table in a design that I liked and got some coordinating beads and chain.
Next I hooked all the filigree connectors with small jump rings so they would lay flat, and added the beads, chain and clasp.
I really liked the way it turned out and am now working on another design using pink earrings.
