I found these old 1970s HUGE gold-colored go-go clip-on earrings at an estate sale. I had some small gold go-go stampings, so I made a matching set of a necklace and earrings. I used the small stampings on the earrings and the one of the old earrings as the focal on the necklace. The chips are amber.

I think it looks much better as a focal than it originally did:

I'm really getting into 'recycling' old, ugly/broken costume jewelry into something (hopefully) cool and wearable.

FAB!  I am also into "up-cycling" old jewelry right now.  This is just super!
