As I mentioned in that post, one of the things we did was play around with some ideas on repurposing some of her grandmother's jewelry into more wearable pieces for Valerie. After she left, I put everything together and I think it all turned out really pretty. So, today, is the big reveal! Yay!
Her grandmother had these pretty Trifari clip earrings. They're very sweet, and in good condition. But, they were clip ons. And that is an unnecessary discomfort! So I snipped off the clips, filed everything down so it was smooth and then wire wrapped a few beads to the main part of the earring.
