Vintage Earring Magnets

Standard

Have you checked out the crafting ideas on the Country Living web site? I want to try them ALL! But I started with an easy one . . . frig magnets made from vintage jewels. I don’t have the brooches they suggest, but I have LOTS of clip-on earrings. Simply remove the backings and glue on a magnet . . . easy peasy and SO pretty!  P.S. You can also click the blue dot on the CL home page to vote for the Reader’s Choice 2012 Blue Ribbon Blogger Award. It was really fun to check out all the finalists! ♥

  1. I love your blingy magnets! I don’t have a magnetic fridge, but my winter crafting plans include taking apart inherited costume jewelry and making napkin rings. We’ll see how that plays itself out.

    • It was! I remember that my grandmother always wore a fancy bead necklace and matching earrings every time she “went calling” on her friends and neighbors and ESPECIALLY to church! On of my friends made some bracelets for me out of some of g-ma’s beads . . . I really love those. :)

  2. way, WAY cool! My friend gave me a bunch of old jewelry to use on my purses, but I may try this with a couple of the pieces, just for fun. Thanks for sharing this idea!!

  3. I just inherited a bunch of 80s and 90s clip-on earrings from one of my mother’s coworkers (I’m still not entirely sure why yet). This would be a great project to use some of them on!

  4. I just had to let you know I kept thinking about this idea all weekend!! I have a lot of my great grandma’s earrings and brooches and never knew what to do with them to display them in a good way! I finally took the plunge and did THIS!! I bought a cookie sheet and am going to attach a picture hanger to it and use it as wall art to display all my great grandma’s jewelry!!! Thanks for the idea!!

  5. Finally, an answer to my prayers. This will def be implemented with all the clip on earrings I received from my mother when she gave me all her old pieces. I’m so excited about this, and also feeling a little silly that I didn’t think of something like this in the first place. Lol. Oh well. Thanks.

  6. The vintage jewelry makes lovely magnets. I think, though, if I were to change any of the jewelry I inherited from my mother, it would be to take off the clips and put posts on the earrings. Then they’d go with the brooches that I use as scarf pins. :)

  7. Love it! There are things that I would love to decorate but don’t want to put holes in them and glue might not hold. Magnets might solve the problem! Can’t wait to tell my mom about this one!
