Remember these clunky earrings?

Long story short: I snipped them into three parts, and am making three new awesome pairs of earrings instead of having one heavy pair I don’t wear.

For the middle segment, I wanted something dangly but delicate:

I put new jump rings in the top and bottom of the silver flower piece.  Pair #1 is a post backed earring, so for #2 I’ve put in a leverback earwire.  This will give me some much-needed stability ~ and also: I just really like leverbacks!  The headpins are all cut to slightly different lengths and I’ve put tiny white pearls on the bottom two with a rectangular moonstone on the shortest. 

I think these turned our really great: a little bit of texture, some variation in the shape; and these are light and delightful to wear!

Next time on DIY Earrings… the wonders of the bottom section!
