Why Don’t You…. Reimagine Your Jewelry – Earrings

 
 
It’s easy to makeover your jewelry and convert some styles of earrings to pieced and make your own design with some hooks of your choosing.  There are many different styles and coloured metals. I look for earrings that I can convert easily, ones with a ring that I can reattach with some small jewellery pliers.

Jewelry Makeover – Updated Earrings & Look At Your Button Box

 

Make over your jewellery with some buttons, small pliers, a small length of gold chain, some small rings and chosen hooks. The pink drops were from a chandelier birdcage of an earring with too much gold. I just separated the pink stones and added to a small gold chain with small rings and now its a much simpler and cleaner look with flair. The pearl drops were buttons, I just detached the backs and added the hooks.

Why don’t You… Repurpose Your Ribbons & Restyle your Jewelry

Instead of purchasing additional lengths of beads, chains or pearls, think about using ribbon to make double or quadruple strands which are easily interchangeable. Simply tie into place with a loose knot that also hides the clasp. As a bonus the necklace holds in place and does not need adjusting as you move. Depending on what you already own the colour combinations of beads and ribbon are endless.

This is one long black glass pearl strand that has been doubled and tied with a red grosgrain ribbon, It can also be made into four strands that sits on the collar bone nicely.

Using What You Have – A New Pearl Necklace

I saw a very pretty pink pearl necklace but did not want to buy another, so after delving into what jewellery I had,  I remade one from what I already owned.
I had three long strands of inexpensive glass pearls, black, pale pink and dusty rose, looping a ribbon through each one to double it up,  I now had a new multi strand pearl statement necklace in minutes. The great thing is I can change the colours and the number of strings any time, getting a new look for no additional cost.
