I hold my hands up and confess! I have a collecting problem (dont we all) I was in a charity shop and there was a huge bag of clip on earing.. all tacky ridiculous coloured hulking things you wouldnt put on your ears... but I loved the colours... so now I have said huge bag (it was only a pound honest!) with about 100 pairs of earings in loads of different colours... any thoughts what I can actually do with them?

Best of 2013 winner, but this is just as good.

First thing to do is to take them apart.  Then you can look at them and decide what to make.  It's sometimes easier to decide when all you have is pieces.

Necklaces, earrings, bracelets all can be made from the parts. 

Have fun.

I have a huge bag of those too! So far the coolest thing I can come up with is embellishing boring old picture frames and trying to match them with a cool picture to go along with the colors in the jewelry.

I use my great grandma's clip-ons as decoration on my lampshades.  I got them stuck everywhere...
on my checkbook cover (makes paying bill a little less gloomy)
my car visor
the curtain on my front door so I can hear the kids trying to escape
to dress-up a plain pair shoes
sewn into a wall hanging
sewn on top of a felt cupcake
on my v-neck shirts
on the cords of my ceiling fans
a scarf
a jar in my bathroom cuz every girl needs a jar of bling
I think I have one or two about everywhere with a half an inch overhang

I love the idea of jazzing up a pair of shoes with them, I think they may end up everywhere too as there are so many of them!

It's 2 pins or clips with chain or beads between. You put one end on each side of your cardigan to hold it in place without having to button it. Also called sweater clips.
