  • use them to jazz up candles, or glue to painted jars to give them some glitz. I have also seen people use them on wreath to give some bling.

    Weep? You can use them as bling to dress up so many craft projects. Some can be re-fashioned into pendants to wear on a chain around your neck. if they are real gold or silver or have gemstones in them you can sell them or have them made into a pin or ring by a jeweler. have fun!

    I have a pair of owl earrings that are not my style at all, but were a gift from a woman very special to me. I painted a small canvas black, then painted a silver tree. I poked the earring through the canvas, so it looks like the owls are perched on the branch.

    what about turning them into pins or pendants; I think pinning them on a jacket lapel or fabric purse would be really cute.

    If You make Your own greeting cards they make lovely embellishments once the back metal rod is removed. Or You could turn them into fridge magnets depending on the size, style, etc.. You can stick them in pillar Candles to make them festive table centerpieces......Let Your imagination loose and You will be flooded with ideas for repurposing. Blessings, Michelle

    I saw a lovely piece of art today made from old costume jewelry . Someone had taken a wooden frame , painted and distressed it. Inside they crafted a large tree and distant landscape , all from old jewelry ! It was beautiful and it looked like the kind of jewelry my grandmother used to wear. I'm guessing that it may have had sentimental value to the artist as well .
