Repurposing Vintage Earrings- Before, During and After

Weeks ago, I bought “a lot” of vintage jewelry. Some things, I liked more than others- of course. This is the way buying “a lot” goes. Some things you LOVE, some things are just OKAY, and other things you pass along to Goodwill, or some other donation service.

I didn’t necessarily dislike these earrings, but I wasn’t wild about them. Had they been listed all by themselves, I doubt I would have ended up with them. But, I’m glad I did.

I decided to liven and modern them up just a bit. No drastic change, just a slight adornment.

All I did was drill a small hole, add some vintage gold chain and some pretty new beads. Now they have a little more oomph, while still having their original cuteness and light weight. They’re ready to go and available in my Etsy shop now.
