Here's a quick little jewelry makeover. I found some earrings at Kohls a while back on the clearance rack. They were marked down because some of the metal dangle beads were missing on one earring. No biggie! Dangle bracelets are so much coolers, so I tore the earrings apart and made a whole new piece of jewelry. The coolest part was I made it while sitting in the car on a road trip… yeah, I carry pliers in my purse, are you gonna make fun?
I added different beads I already had on hand using small jump rings. I made the bass of the bracelet as well as the twisting look with simple metal jewelry wire. You could go crazy and get yourself some genuine silver metal wire for this, but I'm a thrifty gal and prefer not to spend all my cash on my accessories (have you seen me regularly? I'm lucky is I brush my hair!)
See that price tag? 80% off… crazy what you can find on the clearance rack when you don't have the kids asking for toys! I'm not really a fan of the earrings, are you? The diamond/crystals are a bit much for my low frill taste.
You can add some neat accents to pieces just by twisting wire and adding some pretty beads. if you want to learn how to make jewelry, or even fix your own jewelry, I suggest you play with wire. Get yourself 2 pairs of smooth jewelry pliers and read up on making eye hooks… that will head you in a good direction to start.
