Clip-on earrings

I have been very fortunate to have inherited my grandmother's costume jewelry collection. When I was younger, the large baubles and pearls were merely my way of playing dress-up with my friends. As I've grown older, I have come to appreciate many of the pieces and have integrated them into my wardrobe as an accessory staple, making appearances on a weekly basis. I often use her clip-on earring collection in a more creative way, always searching for new ways to display these rare gems in other forms. I love using the larger ones as hair clips as well as clipping them on necklaces, belts, flats (be cautious, you may want to wrap the clip part with a band aid or gauze), and necklines or any hemline for that matter of clothing. Here are a few pics of my favorite pieces as well as using them as hair clips for a day at the office.

That's a great idea! I love the idea of using clip on earrings and turning them into hairclips or putting them on necklaces. It looks super cute in your hair too. Nice amount of sparkle.
