First idea!!

This is what I've used the earrings for (see below).  After a session with a couple of pairs of pliers - one in each hand!!!  I can be ambidextrous when I have to be!!!  This is only the first of probably several designs using these demolished earrings!!  Hopefully Sally will come up with new ideas too as I got her two pairs  from Asda and they should arrive at her place (via Royal Fail) sometime soon.

These are NOT my favourite colours to use as you probably realise!!!!  

I have a seahorse to make for an Etsy order next so after that's done I hope to either return to the cat OR re-do this design with COLOURS.  Big, bright, brash, gorgeous colours.  AND the VERY BEST news is that they will make magnetic brooches!!!  I can't wait to get to those so if there's anybody out there (except the seahorse lass) waiting for anything else - then you'll HAVE to wait - I'm going to be playing!!!

They look great, I love the way you have dismantled the earrings and made these pretty brooches.

I'm still scratching my head trying to figure out how you got the beads on the outside...

Arrived today! Thanks Jane.
Have to think of an idea for them now, like yours very much.

Add me to the list of head-scratchers, please. LOVE the first idea, and am looking forward to seeing the color tests.

One word: Amazing! I thought you only separated the pieces, but you've already tatted around three of them, complete with beads! The enlarged photo shows how great they look! It seems to me any color thread would work!

I've done the 'two plier' thing, too. They seem to use stronger jump rings in commercial jewelry than we have access to in craft stores.
