Repurposing VIntage Jewelry...

Not that long ago a nice bundle of vintage clip on earrings and pins came into my possession. I started to list some of them on etsy but I'm feeling a little reluctant to let them go so I started doing some research on ways to repurpose them here are some of the ideas and inspiration I found....

Magnets! Such a simple idea and I'm always in need of them to put up my daughter's latest drawing or paper from school. I found this on Country Living - they have a lot of great DIY ideas.

Hair clips! This one is by Be Atomic Beauty on etsy.

New Jewelry!
1. Autumn, 2. seedling ring, 3. Hester Sue, 4. Sunny Afternoon Necklace

Unfortunately, I don't know how to make jewelry but these are some great pieces made from old jewelry. I especially like the bottom right necklace by Bee Vintage Redux

Anyway, who knows what will become of them. Maybe I will incorporate them into a mixed media piece or sculpture. I guess we'll see!
