We all love dressing up and we all love to experiment with our looks every now and then. When we go through these experimentation phases, we end up with a lot of jewelry that we do not use afterwards and many people often throw these away. But this jewelry can be salvaged and turned in to something that you would happily wear.
Fashion jewelry is easy to recycle but it is harder to find good uses for costume jewelry. But with a little planning and some simple techniques, you can find good uses for these discarded and lost treasures that were once bought with a lot of care.
There are many craft sites online where you will find good uses for costume jewelry that you no longer use. With a little glue here and a little string there, you can use them to dress up your children when it is time to send them out in Halloween costumes. These are called costumer jewelries for a good reason! Also, they make great decoration pieces or gifts that you might be sending out on holidays. Use them as little trinkets along with your gift decoration and the person receiving the gift will absolutely love the little added touches. It shows that you have taken time and planned the gift decoration with love and care.
Some people like to decorate their Christmas trees with such unique jewelry pieces. Get a little creative and add your own personal touches to the baubles and streamers. Decorate the angel and may be even jazz up Santa’s costume; there are so many different possibilities.
When it comes to fashion accessories, you can team up discarded pieces with other regular pieces that you wear and turn it in to a fashion statement. Choose something like a gemstone beads necklace and hang a small pendant from it for a whole new look. You can also use pieces from finger rings and old earrings and turn them in to unique pendants (this especially works when you can not find the other piece to the earring pair). Just make sure you use pieces that compliment each other.
You can use the top from a broken fashion ring and use it as a part of a charm bracelet. Charm bracelets offer a lot of space for customization. You can use beads from old gemstone jewelry, ring tops, pendants, fancy earrings and other things that you have not been using for a long time or have been laying neglected all this while. With a bit of creativity and some planning, you can have a lot of fun making things like this one a rainy day when you have nothing else to do.
