My Bio teacher is a fan of all my recycled crafty-ness. So when someone left a  big silver hoop earring in her classroom and nobody claimed it, so she gave it to me with the challenge of "make something out of this" So I need some ideas... Thanks!

For a very tiny bag, I suppose. It's not that large, so a bracelet wouldn't work either. Thank you for the suggestion.

Are you allowed to solder anything? If you could solder them together, you could use some copper foil and make them into a suncatcher for a window. Wrap the cut pieces of glass with the copper foil, solder them onto the "frame", solder them together like a figure 8, with a little piece of wire at the top to hang it in a window. You could also macrame them together and make some kind of little mobil . Use  yarn to make a kind of ojo de dios with them.I would give you more ideas, but I don't know if you are allowed to use other stuff with the earrings (like the mobil would be)

If love is blind, why is lingerie so popular?

Are they big enough for napkin rings? You could hang some beads off of them and tuck in an embroidered napkin.

Or, as a holder for other charms and beads as a pendant. Put beads on bits of funky ribbon and yarn, hang them from the earring and then run a chain through the earring too and wear it. You could make one for you and one for your teacher....

Keyring??
