What's Old is New Again

Recently I was asked by a friend to redesign a pair of earrings.  The earrings were a pair of clips given to my friend by her aunt.  While the earrings had sentamental value, they weren't really my friend's style, and the clips hurt her ears.  I have to admit I was intimidated.  What if I cut the earrings apart and my friend didn't like the design I came up with?  Luckily, she did like the design, and I think the earrings turned out very well.  Below is the before and after.  The new design is on the left, and the original clip earring on the right:

Do you have old pieces lying around that have been passed down, or pieces you bought but no longer fit your style?  Why not try giving them a fresh new look?
