Single Earring Loss Solution ~ Repurpose

Earring as a pendant

We've all had it happen; the dreaded lost earring. Whether real or custom, its heartbreaking to throw out that one that remains. And lets face it, if we didn't love them, we wouldn't have bought them. I can't tell you how many, single earrings I've accumulated, thinking that the other would somehow find its way back to me. When I finally decided to organize my jewelry, I still found it hard to throw them out. Then it dawned on me, I can repurpose these pieces into something new.

Using cheap faux suede cord, I was able to turn many of those single earrings into pendants. Even the studded pieces can be used by simply pushing over the stud and pulling it onto the cord.

Others, I simply used an overhand loop knot to tie on the earring. You can also use this method for rings you have outgrown.

You could also use this simple cord for hanging pendants that you no longer have chains for.
