{ DIY } Shoe Clips

I don't know how our grandmothers did it; clip-on earrings hurt! But if you're a vintage jewelry aficionado like myself, you've also amassed a sizable collection. And it hasn't been by choice. A handful accompanies nearly every jewelry win at an estate auction and antique stores insist that you can't break up a matching set ... even if it's just the bracelet you fell in love with. Since those baubles aren't going anywhere near my earlobes, I'm using them to adorn my New Year's Eve heels.

  1. I'd never heard of these until my friend Xenia gave me a cool pair for my birthday. They're snazzy and versatile since you can wear them with any pair of shoes. Ideas from the past can be fun to play with!

  18. Even older earrings were screwons and while the name seems like they would hurt, I've found them more comfortable since they are more adjustable.

  19. Fab idea! Though I did get a lot of lovely clip on earrings from my grandmother converted for pierced ears at a jewellery shop. Doh!
