Here's a great little project to re-purpose some of those unique jewelry pieces you may have received as gifts. This pair of earrings (only one earring is pictured on the left) wasn't really my style, so I grabbed my pliers and went at it.
I removed all five of the dangling pieces from both earrings and the circular embellishment from the earring finding. Then I added two of the dangling pieces to the earrings and used the rest of the beads for the bracelet. I finished off the bracelet with a clasp and hook, and the jewelry set was done.
