Five Minute DIY Earring Hack
I recently went on an earring-wearing binge. While mainly sporting just empty holes in my ears for the last 10 years or so, I only had a few studs to choose from, and none of those cute dangly earrings people are wearing these days!
Instead of heading out to the nearest boutique in town, I remembered a costume jewelry bracelet from my Great Grandma Margaret’s collection. It was…interesting. I liked it in theory, but it has stayed in my jewelry box due to the amazing amount of noise this piece creates as you move your hand — which I have a habit of doing often.
Harken your eyes to this beauty:
I didn’t even need to get into my jewelry tools to wrangle the connector rings open to remove two of the plastic flowers.
And I already had a package of fishhook earrings in my possession — probably from a long-lost craft hope.
A quick sleight-of-hand, and voilà. Cute, vintage, one-of-a-kind dangly earrings.
The best part is that I will actually wear the jewelry and have it remind me of my great-grandma rather than it languishing away in the darkness.
I hope this post sets you on a mini-treasure hunt to see what jewelry you can transform into some cute earrings!
