Get Smart & Recycle ~ How To: Turn Charm Bracelets Into Earrings

Life can be such a busy blur! It can seem at times that we've even lost a day due to our extreme schedules. This can make it very hard to find some time for yourself to create something beautiful!
For a while now whenever an acsessory store has a sale I buy handfuls of bracelets and necklaces with the cutest beads and charms on them. It really gives me a rush lol I guess that's because I can already see what I'll be creating! And a second bonus is.. It was on sale!
Charm bracelets are some of my favourite things to buy in these sales because thair charms can make the most amazing and easy earrings!
I also buy from thrift stores, since it's such a great and easy way to recycle!
Here's a tutorial to help explain what I mean!


Materials:
2x Charm Bracelets
Eye Pins
Jump Rings
Earring Hooks
Chain Nose Pliers
Wire Cutters
Round Nose Pliers
Optional- Assortment of Beads


Instructions:
Start of by using your chain nose pliers to open the jump rings keep the charms on the bracelet. Take the charms off of the bracelets.
With some of my charms I just attached a jump ring and then attached the jump ring to the earring hook. With others I used some beads on eye pins and used them in between the jump ring and the charm.
  

This is such a quick and easy way to make some beautiful earrings, anyone could do it!
If you did make recycled earrings, please post a photo of your creation onto my Facebook Page, I'd love to see it! Please Subscribe to my blog, it would really make my day!
Well I hope you all have a wonderful day crafting!
