A confession: I've never worn them. They have just been sitting with my stud collection for months. I absolutely love the charms though, they're so quirky, especially the cupid. So I decided to take one of the earrings apart and make some ear cuffs. This way, they'll be put to use.
Nothing complicated, the materials were just: ear cuffs, jump rings and charms. To replicate, you don't really need tools as long as you have the nails to bend the rings. It's so easy, a minute later and tada, something new and different to wear.
This is a good way to upcycle old vintage clip on jewelry.
Three ear cuffs from one earring, it's a good deal. I'm going to keep a lookout for vintage jewelry during spring yard sale time! Can't wait.
A 'connected' ear cuff. I don't know what to call these kinds of earrings. I think these need to be kept simple. I don't really like the look of hooks for ear cuffs, so I ordered rhinestone studs. I hope to get them soon!
Thanks for reading, be back soon with photographs of some new creations.
