I got up one morning and a single clip-on earring had somehow made its way onto my dresser. I thought it might look kind of silly to go about with a single earring, so i turned it into a ring! I separated the decorative piece off of the clip-on base and then found two cheap ring bases. (i thought about only using one, but it seemed sort of flimsy.) I filed down one side of each of the rings, so that the glue would adhere better. Then I spread a thin layer of epoxy on each side, clamping them together with clothespins. I used a generous glob of epoxy to affix the decorative piece of the earring to the rings, then left them out to dry for a few hours.

Here's the finished product:

That's very pretty! I really like the earring, and it's been wonderfully reincarnated into a beautiful ring! Great job!
