How often do you stand in thrift stores and stare at all those great vintage clip-ons?  And then wish you could *somehow* wear them?? You know, in way that wouldn't cut off the circulation in your earlobes?  Doe-c-doe makes upcycling clip-on earrings into a necklace look pretty easy.

You can never have too much jewelery.  Or perhaps I should just speak for myself.  And if you're me, you're always on the lookout for ways to make the bling rather than buy it!  So first - create these lovely necklaces from washers (care of a wonderful Little Birdie Secrets tutorial).  This looks super easy.  For less easy but with some serious wow factor, check out Bromeliad's tutorial on how to create a bib necklace from vintage pins.
