Creativity Spurt



So my sister got me these amazing beautiful earrings. I love all the little baubles and beads but they hurt my ears. I got the light bulb over my head and the gears starting were turning. I thought this would make a great charm bracelet! I know my sister wouldn't mind and would even give me cool points.


The bracelet took less than an hour and I just used some needle nose pliers and old tweezers to add to this plain silver bracelet I had.

The larger leafs were a lot bigger than the rest of the charms so I made those into these simple earrings and I love them like this!


As for the other earring, I made it into this snazzy purse zipper pull! I attached it using that ball chain I knew I had saved for something.

I can't tell you how pleased I am, mashaAllah it was fun and and I'll get so much use out of them now!

  2. Those are really beautiful. I used to make some necklaces and was thinking that it would be nice to get some used pieces from a garage sale or something and re-make them into something nice.
