I just thought of something to do with the extra peg pieces...
remember those popsicle stick boxes?  Maybe you could make a peg box that the peg spring jewelry could come in .....would be cool to give someone as a gift... like a complete set!

Vey fun idea !  My oldest daughter has a thing about making jewelry/acessories out of unusual items then has fun seeing if people can figure out what it was or is from.  She made a necklace a few years ago by taking the spring things from clothes pins ( pegs) but instead of hooking them together like yours she simply put leather lacing through the coil knotted the leather and so on...she used 3 springs/coils with a knot on each side.  No one ever figured that one out !   She'll flip over your design ! can't wait till she's home form school to show her. Better round up some clothes ins (pegs) now cuz she'll wanna make this one right away. lol

do you have a pic of her necklace?? sounds cool

whereismymind, I love peg spring jewelry Smiley

My friend made a necklace out of peg springs ages ago, and I hadn't really thought about it again til now.. My mum just went shopping and I've asked her to buy some pegs too!

rad!  I can't wait to try this, too.  I wonder what variations on peg springs are out there to try.  I think it would be cool to put some larger gauge beads (pony beads?) on the springs, too.  Wooden pegs might be nicer cos it seems like you could do more with the leftover peg part.  What about gluing the peg/legs to a hair clip/barette and painting them?

That is so fun!  A belt out of those would really rock, I think.  Now, what to do with the leftover plastic pieces?  I'm sure there's some use for them!

I love this idea! I wore my bracelets to school, and the next day my friend told me that he had tried to steal some pegs to do the same, but now his Mum has hidden them  Wink It's amazing how many people guessed what they are... But they're used to me wearing odd things, they've seen my forklete...
