My grandma sent me a box full of old clip on earrings that I repurposed into rings.  I love big chunky rings!

That's really clever- I have a bunch of old clip-on that are just begging for this!

Looks like you're having fun with jewelry.  These are great.  I love the kitschy look of them.

They were all made from clip on earrings.  I pulled the clips off and used my E6000 to glue them to ring backs.
