so i found this gorgeous clip-on earring at a thrift store, with no price tag and no mate, so they gave it to me for 10cents!

this isn't a horribly difficult idea that took a lot of skill, but i thought it might inspire some of you other craftsters!

i just super glued the earring shut, you know, so it didn't "clip" anymore, and strung it on a chain!





isn't it lovely?!

I think it's a very good way to use costume jewelery, nobody really ever uses those old clip ons cause they're uncomfortable to wear, but they usually have some charm to them, so I say good job, and I'll probably try this!

glad it could be an inspiration!

and i know, clip-ons are the most uncomfortable sort of jewelry made!
