1  JEWELRY AND TRINKETS / Trinkets and Jewelry: Completed Projects: General / Re: repurposed vintage earring necklace on: February 06, 2015 11:15:30 AM
Fortunately with theses earrings I was able to attach them together with jump rings. The chain is connected in the middle of the final set of earrings because it was the only place that would hold the jump ring.

From broken and unusable to beautiful and wearable. I love my vintage earrings and I have a hard time letting go of the broken and single earrings I have. Finally I found a way to repurpose my broken and unwearable vintage earrings by making a necklace that I love even more. The best part of it all I can wear more than one pair at a time this way. I plan on finding other pieces of my jewelry that I no longer wear and repurpose it so that it doesn't sit and collect dust forever.

I made a craft rack out of this country time lemonade container. Much like a spice rack for the easy of accessing supplies while working on a project. It even spins.

This is a paint pallet made from a eye shadow container and it slides in and out of the container. Also included but not tagged is a side drawer for things like buttons, jewelry findings, and rhinestones.

In this photo you can see there is a side pocket for you scissors a spinning tray for rhinestones and multiple slots for glitter containers.

This is where i put my pencils and paint brushes and i also can use it as a spot for my glue gun. The inside can still hold whatever else i put fabric scraps and paint tubes inside. I don't have a photo of the bottom but I placed cd's on a thick screw so the whole rack can spin for convenience.

I love vintage jewelry and have tons of items that are broken, missing their other half, or that have lost jewels.

I couldn't stand to just toss out the still beautiful jewelry, and i couldn't wear it the way it had become. then i thought a lamp shade would look nice. i used wire to string on the beads and just wrapped the metal necklaces around the frame of the shade.

i also used clip-on and screw-back earrings around the rim, so they would dangle and sparkle.

using my scrap vintage jewelry that either was broken or missing pieces i put together a sparkly lamp shade.

my finished lampshade now i need to figure what i can do with the rest of my vintage scrap jewelry.
