How To Repurpose Your Grandmother's Clip-On Earrings

I think we all have some of our grandmother's costume jewelry in our collections. Or if you are like me and love spending your weekends going through antique/thrift stores you will definitely come across some. Flea markets and garage sales are some other hotspots of these items. But what do we do with all these clip-on earrings?

I didn't come across a solid number during my research, but I think it's safe to say 80-90% of women have their ears pierced. So we're going to have to get a little creative when it comes to reusing these clip-on earrings.
